Liverpool fans are drooling over the performance of Naby Keita, after their big summer signing dazzled on his Premier League debut against West Ham.
There were plenty of talking points from Liverpool’s 4-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
Sadio Mane looks like he’s going to give Mohamed Salah a run for his money in the golden boot race, James Milner doesn’t seem to age and Daniel Sturridge redefined the term “super-sub”.
No one was more impressive than Keita though, who was absolutely everywhere in the Reds’ rampant 4-0 win.
The £57m summer signing drove forward from midfield in a manner deserving of the iconic number eight shirt, and it was his run and through ball that set up the opening goal.
It’s rare that a player so seamlessly performs in a new club with a new system, and Liverpool fans can’t quite believe how good the 23 year-old was on his first competitive start.

A dialog screen just popped up, offering Naby Keita to choose a higher difficulty on FIFA.

Naby Keita looks world class for @LFC. Another gem of a buy by Jurgen Klopp. Robbie Fowler said it best, Keita reminds him of Steven Gerrard.
