Liverpool fans got a glimpse of what their new signing is all about as he shines at Ewood Park.
Liverpool will head off on their US tour off the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in which Naby Keita shone.
The Guinean midfielder was the spark his side needed as his introduction in an entirely new second half XI proved to be the catalyst for success.
James Milner had seen his first half penalty saved by Rovers goalkeeper David Raya after the Spaniard had felled Dominic Solanke, while Adam Lallana hit the bar and saw an effort cleared off the line.
Keita’s introduction made the difference though, and after Lazar Markovic opened the scoring, a fine interception from the former RB Leipzig man led to the third time he found Daniel Sturridge, and this time the forward buried it.
