‘If Someone Offered £30m to £40m I’d Take It’ ‘Game Passed Him By’ Fans Criticise Liverpool Midfielder After West Ham Display

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita was substituted after just 55 minutes last night, with the Reds 2-1 down against West Ham. It was the Guinean’s second consecutive start in the league following on from the 1-0 victory versus Norwich but he did very little to suggest that he deserves a regular place in the starting line up.

Before the match, manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that Keita had only made the eleven due to an injury to James Milner, and a lot of fans on Twitter were disappointed by the 25-year-old’s performance:

Keita’s season has been disrupted by injuries once again, and while he may just need a run of games to get into top form, the competition in Liverpool’s midfield means he is unlikely to get that opportunity.

Even with Milner and captain Jordan Henderson injured, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were still available, and with the latter having impressed after coming on in the second half, Keita may have to settle for a place on the bench when the Reds face Watford this weekend.
