Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita insists he needs time to adapt to life in the Premier League, after arriving at Anfield for £52.75 million from RB Leipzig.

Keita was left on the bench for Liverpool’s trip to Leicester City in their most recent fixture, with Sky Sports reporting the 23-year-old believes he’ll will take time to adjust following his move from the Bundesliga.

Fellow summer signing Fabinho has also been somewhat of a peripheral figure in the Liverpool team during the early stages of the campaign.

Kieta has featured in all four of Liverpool’s opening matches in Premier League, as the Reds sit top of the division with a 100% win rate.

The midfielder, who was speaking to the club’s magazine, has been discussing his start in English football.

I’ve been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances.

So playing in the Premier League can be difficult, but I am very motivated to play here, not just for myself and my team-mates, but for the club.

Liverpool visit Tottenham on Saturday, as they look to maintain their scintillating form, and look for their fifth successive league win.
