Don't get me wrong, the point is well made that Lallana is a sick note. He will likely see out his contract and move on a Bosman in a year to a mid table side, or possibly try his hand abroad. He's never been any bother, seems a good sort, but the side we have become has outgrown him. If we get a few bits from him next season here and there, fine, but few fans will be expecting much.What did Lallana contribute to no 6 and 97 points?
To answer the question, I remember a block he did last season. I'm sure there's a clip somewhere but I can't remember who it was against so can't locate it. Lallana showed great desire in the press and shut down a clearance near the edge of their box, and we got a goal from it. I don't know if it was consequential to getting the points or not.
Beyond that, he's part of the group and Klopp seems to like him. He doesn't appear to have the body to stay fit consistently for the sort of football we want to play, but I can't hate him for it.
