James Milner is set to miss a few weeks through injury, and that gives Jurgen Klopp a decision to make. Milner has been a regular so far this season, and so someone else will have to come into the side in his place.
We recently asked fans whether Adam Lallana would be a good choice. According to the Times, he’ll be fit to return after the international break, and he seems like an obvious candidate.
It seems as though many Liverpool fans agree, as of those polled, a whopping 79% of fans want Lallana in the side in place of Milner.
Lallana, of course, has been missing for much of the last year or so, but in terms of qualities, he’d bring a lot to the table that Milner offers. Energy, technical ability, an impact at either end of the field – Lallana’s been able to make a huge impact for Liverpool before, and he’s still got all the same talents.
Whether he’s fit enough to start right away remains to be seen, but in terms of ready-made replacements, the Englishman is an obvious choice – and fans clearly want to see it.
Now it’s over to Jurgen Klopp to make his decision in Liverpool’s next few games.
