Jurgen Klopp has assured that ‘everything will be fine’ with Naby Keita, whom he expects to hit top form.

Keita, who has endured a start-stop introduction to life on Merseyside, started in the Reds’ last two outings against Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

While the midfielder provided an assist against Palace, he did not particularly stand out in both encounters as the Premier League highflyers laboured to a win and draw against the Eagles and Claude Puel’s men respectively.

However, while Klopp acknowledged the fact that there is some improvement to be done, he insists that the former RB Leipzig man still offer promises.

“Yeah, happy so far but still a lot to come,” Klopp said at a pre-match conference.

“Naby is an outstanding player but he still has to improve; minutes, games, language, all that stuff. Everything will be fine, and it is fine so far, but we can really expect a lot more still, that’s how it is.”

Keita has now played 17 times in the English top-flight this season, with 10 of those from the start. However, with a lone assist and only five chances created, he is yet to start influencing things in the final third, and will hope he hits top form when West Ham play host to the Reds next Monday.
