Adam Lallana says he is loving life under new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds midfielder has started both of Klopp’s games in charge of the Merseyside outfit after the 48-year-old German was named as Brendan Rodgers’s successor earlier this month.

England international Lallana struggled to tie down a regular starting spot under the Northern Irishman despite moving to Liverpool in a £25m deal from Southampton last summer.

The 27-year-old midfielder explained why he is embracing Klopp’s tactics ahead of the visit of his former club Southampton at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

“I really enjoyed the game Saturday, I enjoy working hard, especially when 11 players are doing it,” Lallana told Sky Sports.

“There’s no better feeling than winning the ball back in the final third, because it’s not far to the goal.

“He’s trying to implement his style of football. I’m sure any team can run and run and run, but it’s about doing it in the right areas, getting tackles in and putting pressure on the opponents. It has to be structured.”

Lallana, 27, has scored two goals in nine appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

Both of the midfielder’s goals came in the Europa League, netting in 1-1 draws with Bordeaux and Sion.
