#Liverpool fans over the course of this season have become more and more impressed with Adam #lallana as he finds himself one of the first names on Jurgen #Klopp's team sheet for each game. In October last year, Lallana seemed to be a lost cause under Brendan Rodgers and seemed to be on his way out, but Klopp has changed the English talisman to be one of the most important players for Liverpool this season.
Lallana transformed under Klopp
When Jurgen Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager in October 2015, Adam Lallana became a big part of Klopp's plans for the upcoming season. Not only did he play a massive part in Liverpool's Europa League run last season, he secured The Red's victory at Anfield against Villarreal in the Europa League semi-final to send them to Basel for yet another European final. Exactly a year ago, Lallana helped Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino tear Manchester City's defence apart to help Liverpool to an historic 4-1 victory at the Etihad.
Over the course of last season, Adam Lallana's statistics were disappointing with just seven goals and seven assists in the Premier League and Europa League. However, this season, Lallana has scored three times and assisted his team mates five times in just 10 games this season. The stats are even more impressive as Klopp has moved Lallana into a more central midfield position alongside Jordan Henderson and Emre Can in a 4-3-3 formation. Not only is he contributing to Liverpool's incredible amount of goals, his passing accuracy has improved by almost 5% compared to last season.
Changing the game
After being forced off against Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Swansea, he became a big doubt against Manchester United. Despite being on the bench, Lallana changed the game, prompting faster flowing football at Anfield in the dull 0-0 draw in October. If Lallana perhaps played against Southampton, Liverpool fans highlighted the loss of the English midfielder, but missed chances cost Liverpool a big 3 points with a 0-0 draw on the south coast.
Jurgen Klopp has stated that Adam Lallana could be out for 2-3 games and will potentially miss Sunderland and Leeds at Anfield and Bournemouth away. Although it is still very early in the season, Lallana's absence could effect Liverpool's title aspirations.
