Liverpool fans believe Naby Keita is not the player Jurgen Klopp needs to replace Thiago Alcantara, who was injured in the 2-2 draw against Fulham on Matchday 1 of the Premier League. Despite the criticism, the injury crisis has prompted the German manager to consider his options, and there is even talk of a late signing in the transfer window.

Liverpool drew again in Round 2 of the Premiere League against Crystal Palace, this time in a match at Anfield, which took place tonight. Luis Diaz scored his first goal of the game with a stunning strike from outside the box, while Darwin Nunez was sent off in the 57th minute. Although Keita did not see time, Klopp's options are slim in the face of Liverpool's draws.
