Liverpool supporters have been in high spirits in recent times after seeing their team maintain their 100% start to the new Premier League season at the weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with Leicester City on Saturday having got past West Ham, Crystal Palace, and Brighton in their opening three games, in which time they didn’t concede a goal. And while they weren’t necessarily at their best at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, they got the three points thanks to first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, and while Rachid Ghezzal got one back for the hosts after the break, it wasn’t enough to inspire a Foxes comeback.
Consequently, there have been many delighted Liverpudlians up and down the country in recent times, although some have taken to Twitter in recent times to express their views on midfielder Adam Lallana, with many expecting very little of him this season.
In fact, some even suggested that the England international may well be finished, and they are so wrong to suggest that given how influential he has been for the Reds in recent times.
Ultimately, it took time for the midfielder to produce his best form when moving from Southampton to Anfield back in 2014, although he still returned six goals in his first season at the club, before adding another to his tally the campaign after.
But it was in the 2016/17 season in which Lallana really proved his worth in netting eight goals and laying on eight assists in all competitions for Klopp’s side, helping them to a fourth place finish in the Premier League.
In fact, the 30-year-old became a hugely influential player for both club and country during that season to underline just how important he was to Klopp’s side, and while injuries have taken their toll in recent times, that simply mustn’t be forgotten.
Yes, the Reds seem to have improved under Klopp in recent times without Lallana in the team, but a fully fit and firing Lallana, like he was just a matter of years ago, would benefit many sides in the division, let alone a Liverpool team that will be hoping to challenge for the title this season.
So while he has struggled with injuries for some time now, the 30-year-old played a key part in helping Klopp lay the foundations for the success they are having now, and as such he could well add even more to the German’s team when he is back to full fitness.
As such, those Liverpool fans are wrong to suggest that he is finished, as he could still offer a great deal to this Reds team.
Liverpool fans… what do you think? Let us know!
