Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may leave Adam Lallana out of his starting XI for this Saturday’s Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur, according to talkSPORT.
The midfielder has been a pivotal part of the Reds’ attack, but the whole team are struggling at the moment following a dismal start to 2017.
In 10 matches in all competitions, the Reds have claimed just one victory, and that was a 1-0 win over Plymouth in the FA Cup, which they were later knocked out of by Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Klopp’s men are yet to win a league game since the turn of the year, and the pressure is on ahead of this weekend’s encounter at Anfield following last Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Hull City.
According to talkSPORT’s co-host Micky Quinn, Lallana may not start against Spurs after missing some training sessions this week.
The ex-Newcastle United player said on air:
“Since the defeat against Hull they have been on the training ground every day working to a pattern to beat Spurs. By all accounts that didn’t involve Adam Lallana, so whether he’s going to dropped, I’m not too sure.”
The news comes following a report in The Telegraph, which claims that Lallana is on the verge of signing a new four-year contract worth £150,000 per week.
The England international has scored seven goals and produced as many assists in the top flight this season.
