Jurgen Klopp could not hide his delight with Adam Lallana’s performance for Liverpool FC in their 2-1 Premier League win at Burnley on Monday.

The 29-year-old has been in good form for the Reds in recent weeks after having only recently made his first appearances of the season.

Lallana missed the opening few months of the campaign due to a serious injury but made his first appearance of the campaign for Klopp’s men in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea back on 25 November.

The England international made his first start of the season in the Premier League against Burnley on Monday as he helped the Reds to claim all three points at Turf Moor and keep their top-four bid on track.

And Klopp was clearly absolutely delighted by what he saw from Lallana as he played for 86 minutes against the Clarets at Turf Moor on new year’s day.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said of Lallana’s performance: “Outstanding – to be honest, outstanding.

“I thought a few times it was over but he came back, he came back and he came back. Especially after 1-0 he played really good football, preparing the moments for the rest.

“If we would have had a little bit more freshness in the other positions he maybe could have used it. He was really enjoying the game – that was nice.

“The beginning was really strong and then of course a little bit average part of the game. But then he came back again. He is so important for us, it’s really good news for all of us.”

Lallana will be hoping to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to FA Cup action on Friday night with a crunch clash against local rivals Everton at Anfield.

Liverpool FC’s win over Burnley left them fourth in the table as they chase Champions League qualification for the second successive season under Klopp.
