Adam Lallana

Michael Owen, Jack Grealish and Jamie Carragher all praised Adam Lallana for his performance against Bournemouth in the League Cup on Wednesday.

Liverpool legend Michael Owen and Aston Villa attacker Jack Grealish were impressed with the performances of Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho on Wednesday.

Both the Liverpool attacking midfielders started the League Cup quarter-final tie against Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium.

Lallana and Coutinho linked up well with their fellow attackers, and showed the kind of wizardry that everyone knows they are capable.

Both Owen and Grealish were following the match and were impressed with the duo’s performance in the first half.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was also watching the game, which ended in a 3-1 victory for Brendan Rodgers’s side.

The former England international defender was impressed with the Reds’ performance and with Lallana, although he did not like the 26-year-old’s haircut.

Liverpool will take on Chelsea in the semi-finals of the League Cup.
