The Guinea midfielder caught the eye in Liverpool’s 3-1 friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund
Liverpool fans are starting to get excited as the start of the Premier League season draws ever closer.
The Anfield club had a fine campaign last time out and they’ve made some seriously impressive signings to try and build on that, as the Reds hunt for their first ever Premier League title.
Alisson, the Brazil goalkeeper, became Liverpool’s fourth signing of the summer when his arrival from Roma was confirmed last week, following Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield.
Alisson has fans excited, but of the other signings, Keita is the one who seems to be earning all the adoration throughout pre-season.
The Guinea midfielder, who joined Liverpool in July after the Reds agreed to buy him from RB Leipzig this time last year, has caught the eye in the Merseyside club’s friendly fixtures.
He seems to be going from strength to strength before the proper season has even kicked off, and his performance against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday evening was his best yet.
Liverpool may have been defeated 3-1 in Charlotte, North Carolina, but that didn’t stop the Anfield faithful – and one club legend – going mad about Keita on social media.
