Everybody knows I’m a massive Lallana fan.“He’s genuinely two-footed, he’s very creative on the ball, his vision is something else, his spatial awareness is probably the best of any England player. It is debatable of course.“He’s an absolutely superb player but he’s always injured.

Maybe I’m wrong about this and Liverpool fans want to disagree but I look at it and think this is the peak time for him but he’s going to get passed that peak very soon given the way he plays and the injuries he’s had.“Can he handle Klopp’s methods? Klopp’s methods meant some players got injured at the start and it was affecting Liverpool’s squad a lot.“It seems to be working well now but for Lallana it might just be too much.“What’s he going to do? Is he going to stick around there waiting for a chance in the first team and still do what Klopp wants him to do which may be why he’s getting so many injuries. smart causal huge blow Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 3 Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars Latest Liverpool FC News REVEALED REVEALED How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? “Or is he going to put his hands up and say, ‘I can’t handle what Klopp wants me to do, I’m not going to get in this team anyway, I might as well leave’.“I’m not sure he’s cut out for what Liverpool want from him.” possible standings Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Lallana’s first team action have largely come from the bench since the beginning of last season shining “He’s 30 now.
