There was once a time when Liverpool fans would bemoan the £25m spent on Adam Lallana back in 2014…
He’d be criticised for lacking end product, for not contributing goals or assists – but times are a changing – and under Jurgen Klopp, the playmaker has been simply excellent throughout the calendar year.
Versus Leicester on Saturday, Lallana scores his second goal of the season, deployed again in a central midfield role on the left of a three, with Jordan Henderson holding and Gini Wijnaldum just to the right.
It suits Lallana perfectly, as it enables him to run tirelessly and contribute in attack and defence. The Englishman’s feet are a thing of beauty, and you’ll see in this highlights reel the technical skill and creativity Lallana offers at his best.
More of the same please, Adam – and those remaining doubters will disappear.
