Adam Lallana impressed Liverpool fans for his performance in the penalty shootout win against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. Lallana made a rare start for the Reds as he appeared in Jurgen Klopp’s starting line-up for just the second time this season. Lallana hasn’t started any Premier League or Champions League fixtures so has had to make the Carabao Cup his home in recent weeks and if his appearance versus Arsenal was supposed to be an audition to Klopp, the ex-Southampton midfielder certainly impressed. Lallana was sat deep in the midfield in the same was he was in pre-season friendlies. He looked calm and composed on the ball and his cheek Cruyff turn in the first half caught the eye of a lot of fans on Twitter. Lallana might not get a chance in the league any time soon based on the form of those ahead of him in the pecking order, but it was certainly a promising display by the rarely-seen midfield ace.
