Liverpool & Naby Keita
Liverpool fans may be alarmed by the latest news concerning Naby Keita.
Keita recently suffered a back injury in Liverpool’s Champions League loss away Napoli.
The Guinean international was taken to hospital in Italy after that scare. However Keita was given the all-clear following a scan.
Last weekend in the Premier League against Chelsea, Keita was left on the bench at kick-off.
Yet, when James Milner suffered a hamstring injury early on in the game, Keita came off the bench to play 75 minutes against the Blues.

Will the Liverpool star be involved in that match?
Fears have been raised that Keita may miss that game after reports confirmed he’s been training alone this week.

To be clear, while rumours are flying about that Keita may be carrying a knock, that’s yet to be confirmed.
However, if it does transpire that Keita is nursing an injury, Liverpool fans may wonder why the midfielder was allowed to leave Anfield during the break.
