All the talk of our lack of squad depth and over-reliance on a certain subset of players got me thinking about Keita. And then I realized the novelty of that... after all the hype he's a bit of an irrelevance, an afterthought at Liverpool right now. I saw very little of him during his time at Germany but all the reports promised a midfield phenom that could pretty much do it all. We've seen brief flashes of talent but very little evidence of a player that dominates a midfield. In some ways it reminds of the Tim Vickery Lucas vs the real Lucas. There is a good debate about Matip vs Gomez going on but I think the midfield dilemma is even more interesting. Henderson had a mini resurgence at the tail end of last season, Ox is back... where does Keita fit in? I don't get the impression that Klopp is going to put all his faith in Keita coming good by putting him in the team and sticking with him. Big season for Keita coming up.
