      I suspect he still prolly wasn't 100% for this game, and came on earlier than expected.

      That was my thinking too

      At least some flashes show the potential. He's a better footballer than Gini, Hendo or Milly. He will start soon, but right now he's not ready. Fabinho is far more concerning for he didn't even show flashes.

      But I watched him in preseason with us. And when I look how quickly real talents like Salah or Mané were integrated then I wonder if Fabinho can really help us.

      How about Ox?  By this point last season, he had barely played 10 minutes.  If he wasn't injured, he'd be one of the first names on the team sheet now....

      The point is -- trust Klopp.  He knows what he's doing 😎

      How quickly were Ox and Robertson successfully integrated?

      I can’t be the only one absolute thoroughly disappointed with Keita?

      I thought we were getting one of the best midfielders on the planet!

      Turns out he’s alright so far...

      Not righting him off but as far as I’m concerned... I’m disappointed

      Maybe that’s just tha wait and the ultra high rep

      I have been disappointed too , but our tactics seem to be different for our #8's this season, or am I wrong? They are a lot wider than usual, but also act as deep cover for our full backs when they push up.

      Like I said before, play him where Wijnaldum or Henderson have been playing, play him in a double pivot or even #10 free role, and maybe we will see the best in him as his attributes are more suited for a more central role.

      Disappointed?

      We must've been watching differente players. It's there to see that Keita has the technical ability to drive the ball forward from the midfield in a way that no other of our current midfielders can, even when he hasn't quite been fully klopperised and adjusted to our playing system.

      He hasn't hit the ground running, but the quality is there to see. I have little doubt that he will come to be a central part of our midfield for years to come.

      How about we display a f**king modicum of patience before we even consider feeling let down?

      Wouldn't even consider criticising the lad at this juncture, it is reported that he is experiencing  some difficulty in adjusting to life in Liverpool.
      Give him time on and off the pitch to settle down, the last thing he needs is any negativity at this stage of the game.

      No one is let down by him, we are disappointed we haven't seen what he is truly capable of. Of course he needs time to settle into his role, and no doubt he would be in our first team week in, week out, but after watching him play for RB Leipzig we haven't even scratched the surface yet!

      Can’t help thinking we need to be a bit smarter with things like this... after what happened at Napoli, just leave him out for City, and tell Guinea sorry lads he isn’t fit. 2 weeks at home.
      Sounds far better than flying 3000 miles with a seemingly dodgy back!

      I haven't been keeping track - anyone know when Naby is due back?
      Be good to see him getting a run of games - thought he looked promising [and played well without being overly impressive] before getting injured.

      Him and Henderson both back in training, should be available for next weekend, if not midweek.

      I think most were very excited about Keita’s arrival so the fact we are currently top of the table without much of a contribution from Naby bodes well for the future. Just got to get the lad got and ease him back into the side. He has all the attributes to be s real difference maker for the rest of the season.

      Long been said he’s too slow to change things.
      If there’s anyone sad enough would love to know how many unenforced subs he’s made as Liverpool manager before 60 mins. In three years I’d be surprised if it’s much more that 20-30

      Yeah its something he and his coaches need to work on, he is not fluid or dynamic enough within games, he seems to map everything out before the match and if that doesn't work then we are fu**ed. Very very rarely do we manage to start poorly in a game and then improve. What saves us is that at the moment even when playing quite poorly we are still good enough to win but we need to develop that Plan B to implement intra-game.
