Robertson: Keita's best performance for Liverpool

Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson hailed the performance of Naby Keita for their 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.

The Reds returned to winning ways at Anfield on Saturday, with goals from Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah moving the hosts three points clear at the Premier League summit.

On Keita, who celebrates his 24th birthday on Sunday, Robertson told liverpoolfc.com: “He's young and he's had to take time. But if you look at all of us, Fabinho had to take time, me, Chambo.

“There's a kind of pattern emerging that you need to settle in and you need to learn the way to play and things like that.

“I think everyone forgets how young Naby is – 24 tomorrow, he's only a young boy. He's a fantastic player and the more he shows it the more people will start talking about him.

“I thought today he was a different class. I'm sure his confidence will be sky high after today."
