The Liverpool midfielder is preparing for the visit of his former club Southampton on Sunday afternoon

Adam Lallana is gearing up for Liverpool’s next Premier League clash against Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

The England international made his return to first-team action on Monday night as Lallana came off the bench to replace Philippe Coutinho in the first half at Vicarage Road.

Emre Can scored the winner on the stroke of half-time to help Liverpool secure three points against Watford but it was Lallana’s performance that stood out in the English capital.

Lallana has been one of Liverpool’s best players in the 2016-17 campaign alongside Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho and African forward Sadio Mane.

And the Liverpool midfielder took to Instagram to give his followers an insight into the club’s preparation for their home clash against Southampton.

Lallana wrote: “Back at it… focus on Saints this Sunday”
