Liverpool's Adam Lallana comments on changes by Klopp and trying to win

Adam Lallana

Lallana is desperate for Liverpool to get a first win under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana has been speaking to the club website about the changes that Jurgen Klopp has tried to make to the attacking unit, with so many of the players at the new manager's disposal described as number 10s.

Lallana has started all three games of the Klopp era so far, and with the Reds struggling for goals this season, Klopp is trying to get the most out of his more attack minded midfield players.

In an interview with the club's website, Lallana said: "The manager has spoken about us making forward runs without the ball.

"Just because we play as a No.10 in that position doesn’t mean you can’t stretch the game or you can’t do some of the dirty work to help other players in the team.

"It’s about helping each other and whether that’s running off the ball or running with the ball, being unselfish, as long as it helps the team that is what the manager is focused on."

So far Liverpool have only managed to find the net twice in three games under Klopp, and have only managed to pick up the three draws in the process. 

Tonight's League Cup tie against Bournemouth represents another opportunity for the Reds to get back to winning ways, and for Klopp to get his first victory in charge - in the knowledge that it would book them a place in the quarter final stage of the competition with a couple of big names exiting the competition last night.

The 27-year-old added: "We are striving, we really want that first win and I’m sure the manager does as well.

"It’s a great chance for us to go far, but Bournemouth are a tough team as they showed when they came to Anfield in the second game of the season."

Lallana's work ethic in the first few games has demonstrated just what Klopp wants from his Liverpool players as he wants his front men to harry and hassle the opposition in order to create opportunities - while also wanting them to track back and help out in times of difficulty at the back.

The former Southampton man has looked bright during the opening three games of Klopp's tenure, but like his teammates, the lack of end product from him so far is something that he will want to address in the coming games in order to try and get some momentum behind them in the coming weeks.
