The midfielder received criticism from some sections of Liverpool fans last night, despite getting his side back in the game before half-time.

Liverpool earned a vital three points away at Southampton last night, but some Reds fans still took the time to criticise Naby Keita’s performance on Twitter.

The Merseyside outfit returned to the top of the table after last night’s win, and they are now two points ahead of second placed Manchester City, although they have played a game more than Pep Guardiola’s side.

Liverpool actually trailed the Saints up until the 36th minute, when Keita equalised after a fine headed finish, but Reds fans were still not overly impressed with his performance in general.

The 24-year-old joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth somewhere in the region of £52.75 million, but he has managed just one goal and one assist in 28 appearances in all competitions for Jürgen Klopp’s side thus far. 

Those numbers are quite clearly not good enough for someone with so much talent, and many Liverpool fans took to Twitter after last night’s game to criticise the Guinean’s display…
