Liverpool fans are concerned by Adam Lallana’s form

Liverpool’s promising pre-season continued on Saturday night as the Reds dismantled Manchester United 4-1 in the USA to give themselves a subtle edge over their bitter rival ahead of the new season. 

As the scoreline suggests, Liverpool were in excellent form against Jose Mourinho’s struggling Manchester United side on the weekend, but the supporters were not completely satisfied with the performance of every individual.

Adam Lallana started the match in midfield as he continues his preparation for the new season after spending the vast majority of the previous campaign sidelined through injury.

And although it was only a pre-season fixture, the Liverpool supporters were concerned by the quality of his performance and his apparent lack of pace which could well be a natural byproduct of his struggle with various injuries down the years.

Lallana was eventually replaced at half-time by the highly-regarded Ben Woodburn whom provided Xherdan Shaqiri with the assist for his stunning overhead kick, and the supporters expressed their concern for Lallana on Twitter in the aftermath of proceedings.

Plenty of supporters have gone as far as to suggest that Lallana should be sold this summer, with his lack of fitness, poor record in the final-third and unsuitability for Liverpool’s system all cited as reasons to justify his departure.

Whether or not Lallana has a role to play at the club remains to be seen, but with the arrival of both Naby Keita and Shaqiri to consider along with the Woodburn’s potential breakthrough into the first-team, it could be the right time for the England international to embark on a new challenge.

Here’s what the Liverpool fans have had to say about Lallana…
