Former RB Salzburg player, Naby Keita has been offered a warm welcome by Liverpool supporters after signing with the Reds since last year but due to the agreement with the German club side, meant he couldn’t move until next summer.
His start to the season against WestHam showed why he caught the eyes of Jurgen Klopp after laying the second pass that led to the first Liverpool goal by Salah.
He also stole the show against Crystal Palace when he slowed the temple of the game with swift dribble that ridiculed Townsend.
The Guinean midfield maestro has only started in 3 Premier league matches out of four, but why club captain Jordan Henderson started ahead of him against Leicester is left for the German to answer.
With clear observation, Keita bossed the midfield three times which would affirm why Liverpool is yet to concede when he is part of the team.
Majority of the fans have voted for Keita to start ahead of Henderson reason being that, Klopp is trying to avoid any unnecessary error: considering what led to the goal they conceded against Leicester two weeks ago, it was the captain that gave Virgil Van Dijk a difficult pass before he sort to save himself by passing to the goalkeeper.
With club like Tottenham who can harm you with the smallest margin of error, fans are really eager for Klopp to use a fresh player that boast of confidence in the midfield like Keita.

Revealed: Ronaldo Wants Ex-Man Utd Manager At Juventus
Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be pushing for the return of Jose Mourinho to the Italian Serie A.
According to Tuttosport, Portuguese national team skipper wants his compatriot to be the next Juventus manager after Maximiliano Allegri.
Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho worked together at Real Madrid for three years between 2010 and 2013 before the former Manchester United boss left the Spanish giants for his second Chelsea spell in the summer of 2013.
Both parties played a big role in the Real Madrid squad that won the Spanish La Liga title during the 2011/12 campaign.
Italian champions Juventus are looking for a new manager after it was confirmed that the aforementioned Allegri will leave the club this summer.
Allegri won an eighth successive league title for Juventus this season.
Top managers like Antonio Conte, Didier Deschamps, Simone Inzaghi, Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino have all been linked with the job.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest player at Juventus and he wants Mourinho to manage the Old Lady as from this summer according to the aforementioned publication.
Mourinho is no stranger to Italy having won the treble at Inter Milan in 2010.

Big Opposition: Arsenal Face Liverpool Threat For Assist Machine
Europa League finalists Arsenal will have to deal with the threat of Liverpool in the chase for Bournemouth midfielder Ryan Fraser according to The Sun.
Ryan Fraser had a very good Premier League campaign and it’s not surprising that clubs like Arsenal are on his trail.
Champions League finalists Liverpool are the latest club to join the race to sign the aforementioned Fraser.
The London duo of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur had previously been mentioned as a potential transfer destination for the Scottish international player.
Arsenal see him as a possible replacement for Aaron Ramsey who’s expected to link up with his new teammates at Italian champions Juventus at the end of his contract with the Gunners this summer.
Ramsey has agreed on a free transfer move to Juventus with a four-year contract already signed to make him the highest paid footballer in Great Britain at £400,000 per annum.
Tottenham Hotspur have been short in the midfield area since Belgian international star Moussa Dembele left the club for China in January and Ryan Fraser could provide cover in that department.
For Chelsea, Fraser could be a direct replacement for midfielder Cesc Fabregas who left the Blues in January.
Ryan Fraser scored seven goals and also provided 14 assists during the just concluded Premier League season.
Only Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard (15) bagged more assists than Ryan Fraser who has just one year left on his contract at Bournemouth.
This big name linked with a move for Sarri’s job
Italian manager Maurizio Sarri is still unsafe as the West London outfit Chelsea boss with unending reports linking his job to others.
The former Napoli boss has not been on the good books of the Blues’ fans ever since he joined in the last summer transfer window especially as he failed to deliver a title yet despite sneaking into the top-four to secure qualification to the Champions League.
His relationship with the fans remains a major concern for the Blues owner Roman Abramovich who is reportedly considering to sack him after the Europa League clash against Arsenal later on Thursday.
However, out-going Italian manager Massimiliano Allegri is being linked with the job as he has already made it clear that he would move into management immediately with the next club.
Massimiliano Allegri made his decision to leave the Old Lady after his elimination from the Champions League by Ajax earlier on.
There is no doubt about his ability if Maurizio Sarri would be sacked as he helped the Italian outfit with five Serie A titles in addition to leading them to the finals of the Champions League for two years.
With Chelsea not being able to sign new players, it is yet to be seen if the Juventus boss will find it any easy making such a decision.
Sealed Deal!!! New face spotted at Chelsea’s training ground
The West London outfit Chelsea are already in the mood for Europa League finals against North London side Arsenal later on Thursday with training already heating up.
One thing that has caught attention from pictures made available from the training ground is the sight of American footballer Christian Pulisic which is a hope for the Blues team.
Christian Pulisic is only a new face at the Stanford Bridge but he had signed for the Blues in January and was allowed to spend the remainder of 2018/19 on loan at Borussia Dortmund, from where he was bought.
From every indication, the Blues team will not be allowed to bring in new players in the summer transfer window owing to the hammer on them by the world football governing body FIFA.
Chelsea have been accused of breaching transfer regulations with foreign minor deals and they are only left with the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
However, Christian Pulisic is expected to give a feel of Eden Hazard at the club as manager Maurizio Sarri is not sure the Belgium international can be replaced.
Howbeit, Christian Pulisic might be the only new face at the North London outfit if the transfer ban is not upturned.
Report of exit of Liverpool star exciting to fans?
The English Premier League outfit Liverpool fans seem to be comfortable with the report that their star attacking midfielder, Adam Lallana is hoping to leave the club now that the season has ended.
Adam Lallana joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 and has been a major part of the team until he fell out of place in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s team.
However, he is considering to quit and return back to his former Club where he began his professional career and this seems to be accepted by a large number of fans who took to social media to express and grant the approval for him to leave.
While some said it is approved, others wished him well and gave him their prayers.
According to WhoScored , the attacking midfielder has not been favoured in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s team as he made just five starts and eight substitute appearances in the Premier League while he has played 104 minutes in the Champions League for Liverpool this season.
It is therefore yet to be seen if manager Jurgen Klopp will insist on having the star player at Anfield or will insist on keeping him for another season but decisions regarding the sales of players would be made after the Champions League finals.
