That goal was the ideal moment to boost the Guinean’s confidence after his maiden season at the club has seen him struggle to nail down a place in the starting eleven. “The Guinean international had two difficult situations when he lost two balls in the beginning, but then he was in the game and helped us so much” , Klopp said. “In the second half he was there, he was there for the small passes, for closing the right spaces, passing in the right spaces, so that was then really good and helped him a lot for sure.”
Despite going a goal down from an early Shane Long goal, the boys showed their fight and bottle to come back to 3-1 and finish the game in style against Southampton.
Jurgen Klopp expresses his optimistic about five more games to go now – all we can do now is keep winning games!
The Guinea international levelled for Jurgen Klopp’s men after Shane Long’s opener before Mohamed Salah ended his goal drought for the Reds and Jordan Henderson’s strike helped them to return to the summit of the log, having secured two points more than Manchester City who have a game at hand. The Guinea international midfielder has struggled for consistency since arriving on the Merseyside last summer.
However, he has taken to the social media to express his joy on opening his account and helping the Anfield outfit with a win at St Mary’s Stadium. Keita who has been limited to 13 starts in 22 league appearances for Liverpool will hope for another starting role when his side tackle FC Porto in Tuesday’s Champions League game.
