Joe Allen praised by Liverpool fans for Southampton performance, Lucas Leiva criticized [Videos]
Liverpool were far from convincing in yesterday’s edgy win over Southampton, but on the opening day of the season, a win’s a win as they say.
Speaking to fans after the game, two themes emerged from Redmen TV’s interviews: the Gerrard-Lucas Leiva partnership doesn’t work, and Joe Allen’s gamechanging performance.
‘The Welsh Xavi’ came on after 63 minutes, replacing the ineffetive Lucas Leiva, and brought fresh energy and thrust to the Liverpool attack, according to the fans interviewed.
Will this dramatic change in the game provoke Rodgers to drop Lucas in place of Allen for Liverpool’s next game?
