Under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp in the past 18 months, Liverpool have come a long way and finally look like a side that is capable of becoming a regular in the Champions League once again.
Having been defeated in the finals of both the League Cup and Europa League last season, Liverpool have enjoyed a successful first-half of the current campaign and sit second in the Premier League standings- although they’re still a way off current leaders Chelsea.
Klopp has improved the squad though with new arrivals but perhaps the most important factor is the impact he has made on the careers of particular players on Merseyside, with former Southampton man Adam Lallana amongst them.

Having been directly involved in 14 of Liverpool’s 48 goals this season, Lallana has proven to be a vital asset for the Reds and has also cemented himself as a starter for Gareth Southgate’s England.
