Jamie Carragher picks Liverpool star as the Premier League’s best player

Jamie Carragher says Adam Lallana is the best player in the Premier League on current form

Jamie Carragher believes that Adam Lallana is the best player in the Premier League on current form following his recent sparkling displays for Liverpool.

The England international seems to have hit top gear under new boss Jurgen Klopp and has been an integral part of the Reds’ recent good run of form.

Indeed, Lallana scored twice and notched up an assist in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium in midweek as Klopp’s men returned to winning ways in the top flight.

The 28-year-old has scored six goals and made six assists in the Premier League for Klopp’s men so far this season.

And former Liverpool defender Carragher feels that Lallana is leading the way in the Premier League this season.

Asked to pick the hottest player in the Premier League right now, Carragher told The Daily Mail: “Adam Lallana. The biggest compliment I can give him at the moment is when he is not in Liverpool’s team, you can see the hole he leaves.

“He’s been outstanding this season and his performance at Middlesbrough was his best yet, which is why I tweeted he is the hottest English player in the league.

“He has always been very skilful and silky on the ball but he is the perfect player for Jurgen Klopp with the way he runs and presses.

“Lallana has made giant strides in 2016 and long may that continue.”
