Naby Keita picked up a superb assist in RB Leipzig's 2-1 win over Zenit St Petersburg.
Liverpool may be focused on this weekend's crucial game against bitter rivals Manchester United, but one Anfield-bound player was in action on Thursday night.
The Reds can go back to second place with a win over United, and manager Jurgen Klopp will head into the weekend impressed with the display of Naby Keita.
The RB Leipzig midfielder, 23, has starred in Germany, and penned a deal with Liverpool back in August, with his move to Anfield set to go through this summer.
Liverpool fans are excited about the imminent arrival of the Guinean midfielder, and he has notched seven gaols and four assists this season in an impressive campaign once again.
On Thursday night, Keita was in action for Leipzig as they took on Zenit St Petersburg in the last 16 of the Europa League, and he made a real impression.
After Bruma had put Leipzig in front, Keita went on a driving run through midfield before playing a perfect pass for Timo Werner to make it 2-0, with Domenico Criscito bagging a late goal for Zenit.
Having seen Keita conjure up a superb moment of magic for Leipzig, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to rave about his display, suggesting that he is everything that Manchester United's Paul Pogba thinks he is, but never will be.
Others simply can't wait for Keita to arrive at Liverpool, suggesting that he will become even better under Jurgen Klopp, and he can thrive supplying Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the same way he teed up Werner to score against Zenit.
Very hard not to be excited about Naby Keita's #LFC arrival next season. He is going to add so much more attacking threat to an already exciting team.— comBenny Condon (@benny2712) March 8, 2018
Imagine adding a world class midfielder in Naby Keita to this current #LFC team. I don't think I've ever been more excited and positive for a future #LFC team before. #KingKlopp https://t.co/HoPlymrtV5— TD (@DyerThomas) March 8, 2018
That assist from Keita tonight Can't wait to see him doing that for us. I really think he'll bring the best out of our other midfielders, especially Wijnaldum. He's capable of so much more but often plays within himself. Naby will lead the way. #LFC— Mo (@MomoyoyoLFC) March 8, 2018
Can't wait to watch Naby Keita play for Liverpool next season he looks the perfect fit #LFC— john boii (@JSealeaf) March 8, 2018
The more I watch Naby Keita the more I believe he's the best midfielder in world football. Vision, passing, dribbling, shooting and even breaking up the opposing play. It's all top notch. What an addition he's going to be. #LFC— DaddyTheNinja LFC (@DaddyTheNinja) March 8, 2018
Just watching Naby Keita, what a player we have on our hands, you just know he can pick it up another 20% when he gets to #LFC too.— Danny Hamilton (@DannyHamilton3) March 8, 2018
