Klopp picks out Lallana for special praise after crucial Burnley win

Jurgen Klopp picked out Adam Lallana for particular praise as Liverpool overcame Burnley at a blustery Anfield this afternoon.

The Reds moved back to within a point of league leaders Man City thanks to a brace apiece from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp once again made reference to weather conditions, while saying that England international Adam Lallana – who was making just his fourth league start of the season – was one of the best performers on the pitch.

“Are we allowed to talk about the conditions?’’ Klopp told BBC’s MOTD.

“We played our game. The first Burnley goal was maybe a little bit of the wind. In most countries it would not be allowed that goal. You cannot treat the goalie like that in the six-yard box.

“Adam Lallana didn’t score but he was best man on pitch. He had an outstanding game.

“At 3-1 up all the balls Burnley got were from us. I’m completely happy with the performance – especially against Burnley.

“Nobody gets rid of us.”
