Liverpool receive great injury boost ahead of Man City game

Liverpool have been given an important injury boost over the condition of Naby Keita ahead of the showdown with Manchester City.

The former Bundesliga midfielder was handed a start by Jurgen Klopp ahead of skipper Jordan Henderson on Wednesday as the Reds traveled to Italy to face Napoli.

Keita was not necessarily having the greatest of games as he made his first appearance in the Champions League for his new club.

But it all got even worse for the midfielder as he was forced to be stretchered off due to a back injury during the first half of the game.

There were serious concerns over the fitness of Keita as he was admitted to the hospital moments after being withdrawn from the match.

However, the Mirror are reporting that the 23-year-old has made a very quick recovery from the problem and he could even be included in the team to play Manchester City on Sunday.
