A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media picked out Keita following his display and feel that he ran the show.
Keita got himself on the scoresheet for the second game in succession and dribbled past opponents so effortlessly at times.
The 24-year-old has great competition in the centre of the park for a permanent spot, but is a talented individual and caught the eye on the Champions League stage.
One supporters compared the central midfielder to Spanish icon Andres Iniesta, who is regarded by most as one of the best midfielder in the 21st century.
Here are some Liverpool fans on Keita:
