The Englishman went on to say: “Three points is obviously the main thing. At the end we made it a little bit nervy for ourselves by conceding, but [they were] tough conditions. 

“No excuses, it’s the same for both teams, but I think both teams would rather it wasn’t blowing a gale out there.

“But considering we went 1-0 down early, I thought we responded well and were calm and showed good character. You’re not going to get everything your way at home and you might go behind. I thought we were calm and dealt with it really well.”

Adam was one of the star performers on the day – we’re going to need more of our fringe players to step up and put a shift in it like that if we’re going to oust City from top spot.

Before the game, Klopp stated that it was Lallana’s good work in training that earned him a place on the pitch. The midfielder will be hoping that Sunday’s game is just taste of more to come.

During the conversation with Liverpool FC, the midfielder revealed that, “It’s been a tough 18 months to two years for me”.
