To be fair though, don't let the stereotype of the black African midfielder (athletic, strong, not so technical) fool you.
Yeah Keita is great at fast transitions but he's also a great dribbler (has some of the best numbers in the league) and can really pick a pass. Contrast that to, say, Gini Wijnaldum who hardly ever even attempts to take on an opponent, and is very conservative with his passing, and you have a significant improvement going forward.
Is he going to be the answer? I don't expect one single player to solve all our issues, but I am sure he can help a lot.
Aye, i've heard the lad can do absolutely everything and I cant wait to see him in action. But asking the lad to be a 6, 8 and 10 is surely asking a lot.
We sold a very good 10 and Lallana has his uses, but he is not like a new player and all that bollocks.
What we need to be looking at is someone who isn't all straight lines like Ox and Wijnaldum, someone with some craft.
All of our chances today were crosses or chips into the box. Swansea defenders will have had harder games than that this season. We were predictable.
In fairness it wasnt helped that Firmino was quiet and missed a sitter and Mane and Salah but in 2 very poor displays as well.
