Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk applauded "fantastic" Naby Keita as he continued his recent improvement with another goal in Tuesday's 2-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Porto.

Guinea international Keita joined Liverpool to much fanfare at the start of the season in a transfer that had been arranged several months earlier, according to Goal.com report. 

Technically gifted and forward-thinking, expectations were significant after a brilliant spell at RB Leipzig, but he has struggled to hold down a regular place in Jurgen Klopp's team.

Of his 22 Premier League appearances, only 13 have been from the start, though in recent weeks there have been suggestions he is finally settling into the side.

He scored his first top-flight goal against Southampton on Friday and he added to that with a deflected effort to open the scoring in a positive performance against Porto, and Van Dijk was thrilled for his team-mate.

"He's a fantastic player, we see obviously him day in, day out," the Dutchman told reporters at Anfield.

"I'm just happy for him. He's starting, but to score two goals in two games is very pleasing for him and very important for all of us."
