Liverpool have got more than one reason to be happy

It's all beer and skittles in Europe when it comes to football and there is no reason to look anywhere beyond the idiot box for your weekend diversion. With the leagues entering the business end of the season, the big names are stepping up to the occasion and bullwhipping their adversaries into the middle of next week.

This weekend was no different and as many as 3 top players scored 4 goals each in a single match as they single-handedly dressed their teams for success.

Here, we take a look at 5 of the best individual performances from this past weekend. Let's cut the chit-chat and get to it.


#5 Naby Keita (RB Leipzig): 1 goal, 1 assist vs Bayern Munich

Caught in the battle for UEFA Champions League qualification, RB Leipzig had to get a win against a dominant Bayern Munich side to stay within an arm's length of Eintracht and Bayer Leverkusen.

But when they hosted the Bundesliga leaders on Sunday, they weren't really expected to get the better of Jupp Heynckes men although going by what we have seen over the past couple of years, we shouldn't have put it past them.

And it was largely down to one man. Naby Keita. Playing in a more advanced role than usual, the future Liverpool man channelled his creativity by constantly bugging the Bayern defence with his forays into the final third.

He equalized for RB Leipzig more than half an hour after Sandro Wagner had put Bayern ahead in the first half.

Keita then slid a measured through ball into the path of Timo Werner which the German youngster latched on to and dispatched clinically.

Naby Keita was immense on the night and created 4 chances which was more than what any other player could create on the day. Given that his contribution came against a classy Bayern Munich side, this is one performance that should definitely not go under the radar.

Jurgen Klopp has had a great weekend altogether and we'll come to that in a bit.
