Report: He Did Not Leave On Crutches Naby Keita After Liverpools 5 0 Thrashing Of Manchester United

A report has allayed fears of the seriousness of Naby Keita's injury picked up for Liverpool whilst playing against Manchester United on Sunday.

Keita had been brilliant for Liverpool as they tore apart the Red Devils 5-0 but there was widespread concern when he left the pitch on a stretcher following Paul Pogba's reckless challenge.

Positive Injury Update

The Athletic however gave a positive update on the Guinea international and explained why the injury may not be as bad as first feared.

'Keita was able to rise to his feet and join the celebrations. Pogba did not connect with his weight-bearing foot and he was instead bounced out of the way by the impact. He had not twisted anything - he did not even leave the ground on crutches.'
