Liverpool fans rave about Naby Keita’s performance v West Ham






Brilliant start

Naby Keita made his first competitive Liverpool start against West Ham this afternoon and Reds fans loved what they saw.

The midfielder finally made the move to Anfield this summer after agreeing a transfer with his former club RB Leipzig in the summer of 2017.

It’s been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait as he put in a brilliant performance against West Ham this afternoon.

The player looked comfortable on the ball, threatening going forward and struck up a partnership with Sadio Mane.

While Jordan Henderson has been a staple of this Liverpool side for several seasons, Keita’s performance will certainly worry him.

Something different

While Henderson held down the midfield well for Liverpool, the one thing he struggled with was having an effect going forward.

That has been the opposite for Liverpool today with Keita really threatening going forward and giving Jurgen Klopp’s side something different.

His ability to find space where there looks to be no space at all was pivotal in the win over West Ham.

He also played a pivotal part in the first goal, making a brilliant run to set up the chance.

Time will only tell whether that continues for the rest of the season but today’s performance can only be a positive for all Liverpool fans.



Reds off to a brilliant start

While Naby Keita was one of the main talking points, he wasn’t the only one.

That is because Liverpool brushed aside West Ham with a brilliant performance.

Mohamed Salah opened his account for the season when he tapped in to make it 1-0 before Sadio Mane made it 2-0.

Mane grabbed his brace in the second half when he latched onto a poked through ball by Roberto Firmino, putting the game well past the Hammers before 60 minutes.

There will be many happy Liverpool fans this evening following that performance.
