Lots of Liverpool fans have been reacting to an update from James Pearce, who expects the Reds to offload Adam Lallana despite his goal at Old Trafford.
The England international had not found the net for the Reds since May 2017 before his strike on Sunday, but what a way to rediscover his goalscoring touch.
Lallana ghosted in behind Manchester United’s impressively parked bus to tap in the equaliser at the back-post, with Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler proposing that the strike could get the 31 year-old’s career “back on track”.
Pearce though, writing for The Athletic, has stated that this is “likely” to be Lallana’s final season in a Liverpool shirt.
He is out of contract next summer, and even though there is an option to extend it, the belief is that the option would only be used to increase his sell-on value and prevent losing him for free.
Fans have produced a mixed reaction to the update, with some cursing his injury record and praising his talents, while others look to the future and eye up Marko Grujic as a potential replacement.
Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Grujic to take his place??♂️

I feel for Lallana. Could have been a really good player for us if injuries hadn’t robbed him.

He’s a great player when he’s fit and seems a nice lad as well. Been very unlucky with injuries the last couple of years. He’s actually scored a few crucial goals for us so it’s not all bad. I thought Klopp really liked him so you never know perhaps he will end up staying.

If that is true he will leave with a Bang and he already did it at Old Trafford and he deserves to leave with a medal on his neck this season.

Since he signed he was one of my favorite players. So skilled on the ball, injuries did him dirty.

Ive always loved him. Hes perhaps the most gifted technical player we have. Injuries decimated him

Was fine when we signed him, but given our improvement, he is one that you’d be happy to let move on. Clyne the same, as was Mignolet, Skrtel and others. Sometimes, you just become better than the players you signed when you were 7th.

People forget he was our best player for a good while under Klopp. Some might look at that negatively but he was definitely very good. A pressing machine. Shame his injuries and slow start under Rodgers affect perceptions so much. Hope he has a good season
