Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to moan about Adam Lallana, after the midfielder missed yet another pre-season game through injury.
No Adam Lallana or Bobby Duncan in the #LFC squad tonight. Lallana has a dead leg, Duncan suffered a minor foot injury in yesterday’s training session.

The former Southampton man missed the 2-1 loss to Sevilla entirely with a dead leg, an issue which also meant he didn’t feature in the game against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday either.
“It reminds me of a bus seat!” – Watch a damning verdict on Chelsea’s new kit in the video below…
Lallana, 31, made just 13 Premier League appearances last term, starting just five games, and his injury problems are starting to become a bit of an issue in terms of him being consistently available.
With no new signings of significance appearing to be coming through the door at Anfield this summer, Liverpool will need to rely on all of their assets to match the might of Manchester City and their resources – if fringe players like Lallana can’t be depended on, however, the squad will become stretched.
Some Liverpool supporters seem to know this all too well, and have expressed annoyance on Twitter at the news that the 5 foot 8 midfielder is injured yet again.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets…
Lallana not even on the bench this evening. Totally injury plagued.

He’s finished. It’s just the reality. Players don’t get less injury prone as they get older. Time doesn’t work that way. He’s basically been injured now for 3 years.

Yo @JNorb14 we should just sell him imo

How is Fekir deemed a risk if Lallana is considered to be a vital squad member…man will need treatment table surgically removed

He’s an unsaleable asset. No one would buy a player who is injured so often. Overall he’s been a very poor signing

We need to get rid and use the funds to be put towards a proper midfielder. Edwards would get us £30m for Lallana as a minimum some how.

Get him gone, way past it and seriously injury prone ?
