‘Has Been A Disaster This Season’ ‘He Wasn’t The Problem Against Villa’ Fans Debate Liverpool Midfielder’s Form

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita splits opinion among Reds fans and his performance in the 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa has become a lightning rod for criticism.

The Guinean international was taken off at half time by manager Jurgen Klopp as he looked to change the team’s shape and supporters on Twitter are not sure whether he deserves to get his place back in the starting eleven:

When captain Jordan Henderson is fit, there is no doubt that Keita will be the favourite to make way. However, any criticism of the 25-year-old’s performance must be tempered by the fact that only a week before, he had performed in a midfield that put in a superb shift during the 3-1 win over Arsenal.

The major issue with Keita has always been consistency. There are matches where he does excel, but at the same time, there are occasions where he goes missing, like on Sunday evening at Villa Park.
