Liverpool fans on Twitter were ecstatic with impressive Lallana yesterday

If you’d have suggested to a Liverpool fan on Saturday that Adam Lallana would be the star of their Anfield clash with Burnley and would pick up the man of the match award for his efforts then they’d have laughed at you. However, they were all made to eat their words as the midfielder was different class in the win and was the deserved the praise.

So far in his Anfield days the Reds have come to know Lallana as a flash attacking midfield player who’s not short of graft but has been let down by his susceptibility to picking up knocks. Last season the 30-year-old could only muster a meagre 12 outings in the Premier League, with zero goals, zero assists and an average minutes played per game of just under 20.

This season has, for the most part, looked similar to that. However, his minutes have greatly improved even if the goals and assists tallies are the same. This season in 12 games the former Southampton captain is averaging just over half an hour per appearance for his 12 outings, and if he can make his display from yesterday his benchmark then it will be a matter of time until he grabs a goal or an assist.

You can read the Reds’ verdict on Lallana as he swooped the MOTM award here:

The Reds cannot believe how badly Lallana proved them wrong yesterday and will want more of the same from the 30-year-old dynamic midfielder.
