Liverpool fans have been reacting to a report by Empire of The Kop (after the Liverpool Echo’s interesting tidbit) that Adam Lallana has suffered another injury blow, potentially ruling him out of the club’s Premier League clash with Watford this weekend as the former Southampton man’s miserable, injury-hit season continues.
What a miserable season Lallana is having https://t.co/PlmtrAOGN7

Lallana has suffered a string of muscle injuries in his four years at Anfield, with his most recent one ruling him out of this weekend’s home game against Watford. A hamstring problem has plagued the midfielder for the majority of the current campaign, seeing him make just 13 appearances for Merseyside club so far. Liverpool fans, who have mostly supported the creative midfielder during his Anfield stay, seem to agree that it’s time for the club to part ways with Lallana.
Lallana managed his first 90 minutes of the season at the start of the month when Liverpool drew 0-0 at home against Porto in their Champions League second leg but has failed to complete a full game since. He came off the bench for just under half an hour on the weekend in Liverpool’s loss to Manchester United as his recovery seemed to be going well, with Klopp reintroducing him to first-team football. Although the 29-year-old’s most recent set back will make Klopp wonder if it’s worth persisting with such an injury-prone player.
With that in mind, here’s our resident Reds’ verdict on Lallana:
Time to sell I’m afraid. Massive fan of his but injuries are just taking its toll, his also not getting any younger..

Don't need him to win anyway IMO. He hasn't played in a lot of games where we have played our best football. We need Hendo though.
