‘Where are the Naby Keita haters at?’ – Liverpool fans are delighted for midfielder scoring his first goal for Reds during Southampton clash

Naby Keita was a surprise starter for Liverpool’s trip to Southampton on Friday night but it’s beginning to look like a very astute decision from manager Jurgen Klopp.

The midfielder got the Reds right back in it at St Mary’s with his header getting the equalising goal after Shane Long gave Saints an early lead.

Keita’s header took a deflection off Jan Bednarek before squirming under Angus Gunn

The goal is actually Keita’s first since he completed his move to Anfield last summer.

He cut a very relieved figure when celebrating opening his account for his new club on his 28th game for Liverpool – taking 29 shots to finally get his first goal.

Liverpool have been far from their best so will be thankful they are on level terms as they look to regain top spot in the Premier League.

It’s a nervous time for all Kopites out there but some took to Twitter to congratulate Keita on his first Liverpool strike.
