Keita was brought off the substitutes’ bench for Liverpool at the weekend, and he helped them rescue a point against Manchester United.
The Reds had looked below par at Old Trafford, but Keita’s arrival on the field helped them find their groove.
The Guinean midfielder helped to set up the equaliser for Liverpool, as he played the ball out wide, before it was crossed in for Adam Lallana to score.
And Klopp admits that Keita’s form in training has caught his eye recently.
“Soon [he will be back to his best]! He has been one and a half weeks in training. He looks good, really good,” Klopp enthused.
“They all look good, that's why we made the changes we made (against United) because we knew they could make an impact.”
Keita is yet to make a league start for Liverpool this term, after he picked up an injury right at the start of the campaign.
The 24-year-old may yet have a key role to play at Anfield though, as his drive and creativity from midfield could prove crucial to Liverpool as the season progresses.
Klopp’s side are next in action later this evening when they take on Genk, and Keita may well be given more game time during the contest.
