Joe Allen enjoys a lot more popularity within the Liverpool dressing room than one would think, by the looks of his birthday party last night.

The Welsh Xavi managed to get pretty much the whole team out for his birthday bash, save for a few absentees like Jordan Henderson.

The WAGS were in attendance, and in fine fettle on the night, dressed up to the nines and enjoying the social occasion as per their remit.

Allen is crouched down at the front of the pic, l0oking well on it and in merry spirits.

Iago Aspas, of all people, managed to grab the coveted central spot for the photo; unfortunately the same can’t be said for his luck on the pitch…

As an aside, will Rodgers have approved on this less than 48 hours before the crunch game at Old Trafford?

Surely his 24th birthday bonanza could have waited a couple of days…
