      I personal believe Keita will be one of the best midfielders in Europe come next season

      I would like to see him be the best midfielder in Europe this season and help us win the league.

      Every time I've seen him he looks very promising, perhaps he's one of those players who needs a good run of games, lets keep him in the midfield for the next 3-4 games and rotate others in alongside him, if he still doesn't make the grade then we reevaluate then.

      I think that is the problem he has not had a good run of matches to establish himself in the team.Also I think he has carried a few injuries this season.

      He’s a huge talent and will be a star I think Billy.

      BUT

      Let’s not beat about the bush - other than maybe a game and a half (West Ham / Burnley) - he’s not given Jürgen anything like a selection headache so far with his performances.....

      I'd love to see Keita and Fabinho given a good run of games now to establish themselves in the team, with otther midfielders rotated in, this would give them good game time and give the other midfielders a bit of a breather.

      Showed why he's not in the PL starting XI. Or even coming on as sub.
      Don't know what's up with him - he doesn't look sharp, or even too interested.
      Will be patient, but expect a LOT more from a big signing.

      He lacks match sharpness didn’t help tonight playing behind two youngsters and Moreno, the titanic next to him and two immovable objects up front!

      First start for him in ages playing alongside Milner as a No 6 who was very very poor tonight, Curtis Jones stuck out on the left, I’m surprised he didn’t have a word with Klopp with that set up.

      It's as bad I've seen Milner play in a long time.

      First half seemed to take it on himself to babysit Hoever and Camacho for some weird reason and second half he may as well sat in the stands or found the space that Sturridge was hiding in.

      The signing i was most excited about. I was in anticipation of a Kante/Iniesta hybrid.

      Not sure so far at all. Even at his best he takes too many touches and goes down lanes the forwards want to go down.

      Honestly as it stands with us being out of all domestic cups he could find game time hard to find for the rest of the season.

      If Ox comes back in any sort of form next season then this could be a short stay here.

      There's time yet but for the moment he has the least presence of our midfield players.

      Was very average tonight however you put him in a team with attackers that actually offer some movement is where I see us getting the best out of him.

      he kept on over running the ball and losing it which had nothing to do with the way the team set up. I cant remember him making many tackles either he is just a shadow of the player we thought he was.

      It wasn't the best match from Keita, but everyone played bad against Wolves. He is going to be back in form against Brighton.

      Very poor display from Keita, but the whole team seemed low in moral and confidence yesterday and no wonder with so much chopping and changing. There is a player there but I sense that Klopp maybe doesn't like/rate him or there is some other kind of issue there, hopefully he'll come good but I'm starting to have some doubts whether he is the right fit for us.

      An assist today and was always looking for the ball. Unfortunately Naby still didn't look confident on the ball and his passing was a bit sloppy.

      Playing on the left wing isn't doing his confidence any favours. He is a CM and a CM only. Hopefully he gets a crack in his proper position before the season is out to build some confidence. I still think he will be a good player for us.
