Naby Keita's arrogant face after scoring a worldie against Crystal Palace

Naby Keita arrogantly brought his class to the table with a stunning volleyed goal against Crystal Palace, but it was his reaction afterward that stole the limelight.

Liverpool showed their title credentials in a dominant 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds showed no signs of slowing down after opening the scoring in the 43rd minute. A rebound fell kindly to Sadio Mane, who purposefully slotted the ball into the empty net to score his 100th goal for the club.

Jurgen Klopp’s side never looked back from there, with Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita netting late goals to seal victory for Liverpool.

Keita’s classy reaction after a classy goal

He couldn’t believe how easy it was.

Naby Keita had only entered the game in the second half after he replaced an injured Thiago Alcantara in Reds’ midfield. The 26-year-old latched onto a poor clearance to score his first goal of the season.

It was an excellent strike, with Keita volleying home from his weaker foot with little backlift, out of the reach of goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Though, as good as the goal was, it was his celebration that became the talk of the town.

Needless to say, Liverpool fans will never forget the cockiness on display from the Guinean. Check out the reactions on Twitter below –
