Watch: Naby Keita’s brilliant reaction after scoring stunner for Liverpool
Naby Keita produced an Eric Cantona-esque celebration after scoring in Liverpool‘s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Since joining Liverpool from RB Leipzig in a £48million deal in 2018, Keita has struggled to live up to expectations due to a series of injury problems.
The midfielder started on the bench against Palace as Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah gave the home side a comfortable 2-0 lead.
He replaced Thiago Alcantara in the second half and volleyed home from outside the box in the 89th minute to put a cherry on top of an impressive performance.
It’s just his eighth goal for Liverpool and his first since a brilliant strike in a 5-3 victory at home to Chelsea in July 2020
Despite not being a regular goal scorer, Keita didn’t look very surprised and appeared to replicate Cantona’s famous goal celebration.
