A lot of Liverpool fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment in the way Adam Lallana played against Red Star Belgrade.
The former Southampton man was brought back into the starting lineup by manager Jurgen Klopp after being dropped back down to the bench for 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the weekend.
But he didn’t manage to make much of an impact in the 2-0 Champions League loss, despite a good bit of skill in the build up to Daniel Sturridge spurning a great chance to open the scoring.
And there are plenty of fans who would rather he hadn’t been given the nod…
Our midfield has been poor. Can’t create. Can’t keep the ball. Apparently we don’t need a no.10. Adam Lallana is just a waste of midfield spot. It’s faith in mediocre players that often ends up costing us success.

The continuing usage of Adam Lallana anywhere in this side is annoying as hell. Adds nothing to the side and yes, I'm pissed off.

Is Adam Lallana running through sand? #RSBLIV

Lallana’s pace more suited to line dancing

Anyone else audibly sigh as soon as Lallana comes into play?

Remember when we didn’t need fekir because Lallana was like a new signing?

Although not all Liverpool fans were unimpressed with how the England international played…
Was about to come in and say Lallana has had a couple of good moments (should have an assist and had a good header blocked) but everyone is slaughtering him so I’ll keep that one stored away. 🤐

I’ll be honest, I’m happy with Lallana getting game time in games like these. He really needs to go back to his best, to at least be a solid backup options in important games.
