Which season does this iconic Liverpool image belong to?

But having been given a start against Bournemouth, the 24-year-old quickly set about trying to prove why Jurgen Klopp was right to bring him to the club. The former RB Leipzig man ran the show in the middle of the park, scoring one goal, providing another assist, and completing 89 passes, with Liverpool fans taking to Twitter to voice their delight at his display.

Some Liverpool fans felt Keita’s performance against the Cherries could be the moment he finally steps up and really shows what he is capable of, and produce displays more fitting of his time at Leipzig.

A few fans even raised some incredible comparisons between Keita and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, with suggestions that he could go on to emulate what the Reds hero did.

Make no mistake about it, a long season will always mean that players on the fringes of the first-team will get their opportunities to shine, and it will be up to them to ensure that they make the most of it. After starring against Bournemouth, Keita has shown that he will be ready to answer the call whenever Klopp deems necessary.
