Adam Lallana played for just over an hour in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over French outfit Lyon on Wednesday.
Named in a deeper central midfield position as opposed to a more advanced number ten role, it was certainly an opportunity for the England international to impress ahead of the Community Shield this weekend.
The 31-year-old has found it tough to really kick on at Anfield in recent years, with injury problems last season proving particularly detrimental.
After the clash against Lyon Lallana insisted that he can contribute in the upcoming campaign and also suggested that he enjoyed himself in the new-look role.
"I found myself playing there a few times this pre-season and I’m happy to play anywhere. I’ve enjoyed it, obviously getting on the ball."
Adam Lallana believes he can offer a different aspect to this #LFC team from his current deeper role ?

There were a number of Liverpool fans who took to social media to react to his back the former Southampton youngster, insisting that he can impress in the coming season.
However, there were just as many supporters who took the chance to have another pop at the 5 ft 8 ace as the new campaign draws closer.
A selection of the Twitter reaction is available to view below:
If he wants to play anywhere how about MK Dons?
