The England international is ready to put a turbulent start to his Liverpool career behind him and help transform a winter of discontent into one of revival.
There has been plenty of pain and frustration but recently that’s given way to signs of rich promise.
Having operated out wide during the early stages of the campaign, Lallana has flourished centrally in Brendan Rodgers’ 3-4-2-1 formation.
“I do think a central role is where I am best. It’s where I played most of my football last season. I can play a variety of roles but I do enjoy playing that position.” said Lallana.
His eye-catching displays against Bournemouth and Arsenal showed what a classy creative force he can be for The Reds.
He said “I feel as if I’m getting to the form I want to be at, More importantly we have found some performances as a team which is vital.”
Earlier, Lallana’s chances of hitting the ground running at Liverpool were dashed back in July when he pulled up during the club’s training camp in Boston. A knee ligament damage kept the 26-year-old out until mid-September and when he did return to action he struggled to live up to his billing.
