Liverpool fans growing concerned with Naby Keita after latest injury scare

Many Liverpool fans are starting to grow concerned by Naby Keita’s injury record, and wonder if things will work out for the Guinea international at Anfield.

Keita was taken off in the 55th minute of the Reds’ Carabao Cup win over Arsenal on Wednesday night, with Jurgen Klopp confirming after the game that the 22-year-old would be assessed after sustaining an issue when slipping early in the second-half.

Teenager Curtis Jones replaced Keita against the Gunners, and went on to score in the subsequent shoot-out which booked the Merseyside outfit a Quarter-Final date with Aston Villa.

Keita’s starting call for the midweek clash was his third of the campaign across all competitions, having overcome an early-season torn muscle that denied the 30-cap midfielder from featuring in six games.

The 24-year-old was frequently omitted from matchday team sheets last term, as well, with Keita missing a spate of games throughout the season through a muscular problem, knock and a groin injury.

He would play a total of 1,817 minutes for Liverpool last season following his summer arrival from RB Leipzig, where he also spent 71 days in the physio’s room during his final campaign with the Bundesliga outfit.
