Jurgen Klopp singled out Adam Lallana for special praise after Liverpool’s dramatic 2-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Monday.

After a goalless first half at Turf Moor on new year’s day, Sadio Mane had given the Reds the lead in the 61st minute to send them on their way towards victory.

However, Burnley grew into the game and equalised in the 87th minute thanks to Johann Gudmundsson’s goal.

But it was Liverpool FC who were celebrating at the final whistle, when Ragnar Klavan scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time to hand the Reds a crucial victory and leave them in fourth place in the Premier League table.

Liverpool FC will return to FA Cup action on Friday night when they take on local rivals Everton at Anfield in the third round.

Virgil van Dijk could make his Liverpool FC debut during that game following his big-money move from Southampton.
