Former England international Jermaine Jenas has singled out Adam Lallana as Liverpool’s best player so far this season.
The ex-Southampton man came under criticism from sections of the support for a lack of goals and assists, but he has so far performed well this season.
And it hasn’t gone unnoticed, with Match of the Day pundit Jenas pointing to the twenty-eight year old as the key performer in Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.
“Adam Lallana had struggled to win over some fans since he was signed by Brendan Rodgers in 2014, with many assuming he would be a victim of Jurgen Klopp’s revolution. But the opposite has happened.” he told Yahoo!.
“The midfielder came into his own at the end of the last season on Liverpool’s run to the Europa League final and was then one of the few players to emerge with credit from England’s Euro 2016 campaign.
“This year he has carried on that good form – to the degree that I think he has been the Reds’ best player this season.
“There is a lot of competition for that accolade – Sadio Mane has been a great signing and Jordan Henderson has been excellent, while Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino have chipped in with important goals – but Lallana has been better than all of them.” he finished.
