Naby Keita is set to miss Wednesday night’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea after picking-up an injury in Liverpool’s final training session before the match.

As is common before a European game, the squad underwent preparations at the stadium on the eve of the fixture, but after a knock, Keita was forced to leave the pitch with a fitness coach.

Even if it proves to be nothing serious, Keita is highly unlikely to be risked against the Blues, with several senior midfield options available to Jurgen Klopp.

It’s a likely minor, but frustrating blow for the midfielder, who has already spent plenty of time on the sidelines in 2019.

An injury sustained at the Africa Cup of Nations disrupted his pre-season, but he was able to return for our final friendly against Lyon and feature as a substitute in the Community Shield.

Keita was then left on the bench against Norwich, perhaps with a view to playing him from the off in midweek.

After a debut season of adjustment, Keita could hit tremendous heights this term, provided he swiftly overcomes these niggles.
