Adam Lallana shuts up his Liverpool haters vs Burnley

Liverpool haters vs Adam Lallana

When the Liverpool team sheet for Sunday’s match against Burnley came out, some Reds’ supporters weren’t happy.

Adam Lallana was named in Jurgen Klopp’s XI, while Naby Keita was omitted.

That lead to a slew of hateful tweets in Lallana’s direction.

Yet, before the break had come around, Lallana had silenced many of his detractors.

That’s after Ashley Westwood had fired Burnley into the lead with a goal straight from a corner.

Liverpool levelled on 19 minutes through Roberto Firmino, while Sadio Mane had the Reds in front in the 29th minute.

Lallana had a key role in both goals.
