Lallana makes his fourth Premier League start of the season

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.

Liverpool supporters took to social media when Klopp’s line-up was announced, and they really could not understand his decision.
