When Liverpool announced the-then club-record signing for Naby Keita back in the summer of 2017, the hype was something that hadn’t been seen for some time amongst supporters.

Yet the 25-year-old dynamic midfielder’s time at Anfield has been a troubled one, with the former RB Leipzig star spending a good chunk of time out on the injury table as records from Transfermarkt show, but Keita seems to be making a comeback of sorts this season.

Will Liverpool go undefeated this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

A report from The Evening Standard reveals that the Liverpool no. 8 ranks highly for the club this season in terms of key passes, xG, and xA per 90 minutes, and these findings resulted in a handful of Reds fans on social media backing the Guinean star returning to the form that made him such a prized asset not too long ago.

Here’s what some Liverpool supporters had to say on Twitter about Keita’s stats…

As stats from Transfermarkt show, Keita has only managed 311 Premier League minutes this season, with the midfielder starring in Liverpool’s past three games.
