Liverpool are currently flying high in the Premier League following an unbeaten start to this league campaign so far. The Reds are now in third-place with only goal difference separating them from Manchester City and Chelsea. To the surprise of many, the Merseyside club have done well defensively but have struggled to score or create enough goals up top.
The front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are all working hard, but they have not been able to provide the cutting edge in the final third. Both Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge have mostly been used from the bench even though the duo have been highly impressive during their time on the pitch. One man who seems to have found life difficult at Anfield this season is Adam Lallana.
Lallana’s Fall From Grace Due To Injuries
The English midfielder has been plagued with injuries all through his Liverpool career and looked like a shadow of his former self during his UEFA Champions League final outing against Real Madrid earlier this year. Lallana has mostly been disappointing when in action during this calendar year and his time at Merseyside might be coming to an end soon, primarily because so many players are ahead of him in the Anfield pecking order.
What Does The English Talent Offer To Jurgen Klopp’s Side?
Apart from his injuries, the English midfielder is known for his incredible dribbling ability with the ball. The 30-year-old has also got an eye for a killer pass in the opposition half. He is two-footed which makes him a joy to watch when he links up play in and around the opposition penalty area.
Does He Have A Future At Anfield?
However, injuries have been a major stumbling block in Lallana’s career, and unless he can turn things around for the better in the coming months, we could see him being moved on by the Merseyside club soon rather than later.
Should Klopp Sell Him In January?
At 30, Lallana is not getting any younger, so if he cannot perform at a high level this season, then his departure might be the best option for all parties as he can try to reignite his career somewhere else while the club can move forward hoping to strive for excellence.
