Liverpool supporters have been left ‘speechless’ by Jurgen Klopp’s decision to start Adam Lallana against Burnley.
Lallana, the England midfielder, has been selected alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho in a midfield three against the Clarets, and you can hear how he gets on with talkSPORT bringing you full LIVE commentary of Sunday’s clash.
Injuries have taken their toll on Lallana and he is no longer considered by fans to be anything more than a squad player; he is a useful substitute, but hardly anyone believes he should be starting a match Liverpool have to win to close the gap on Manchester City.
City moved four points clear at the top of the table on Saturday evening with a 3-1 defeat of Watford.

Lallana has not scored or assisted a single goal this season, and the midfield three Klopp has selected leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to finding the back of the net.
The decision is all the more confusing given both Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri were named among the substitutes.
It is true that neither of that pair have been outstanding for Liverpool, but, Shaqiri at least, offers a real goal threat.
