Adam Lallana's work rate against Tottenham has been labelled "absolutely phenomenal" by former Liverpool player John Aldridge.

Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge has insisted that he enjoyed the sight of Jurgen Klopp showing his appreciation towards the former Southampton man. 

Klopp put an arm around Lallana as he left the field of play after being substituted in the second-half at White Hart Lane.

And Aldridge was certainly pleased with Lallana's attitude throughout proceedings, insisting that the player's performance was encouraging. 

The ex-Liverpool man wrote: "The other player I would mention would be Adam Lallana. For me, he had his best away game in a Liverpool shirt at White Hart Lane.

"His work rate was absolutely phenomenal. No wonder he looked knackered at the end! He covered every blade of grass, and did everything he could to try and make something happen.

"As a footballer, he’s someone who you imagine will suit Klopp, and if he works as hard as he did on Saturday then he’ll be in the team more often than not. I thought his performance was very encouraging, as was the sight of the manager showing his appreciation, both when he came off and at the end of the game."

Dynamic Lallana 

Lallana most definitely has the attributes to star under the guidance of the enigmatic coach. With bags of skill and creativity, the aforementioned forward is one of the most talented players plying his trade on Merseyside right now. 

With the eccentric Klopp in charge, there's no reason why Lallana won't be able to go from strength-to-strength in the coming years. 

Of course, he must continue to work hard, but the 27-year-old may start to come to prominence in a Liverpool shirt sooner rather than later. 

Liverpool fans: do you expect to see the best of Lallana this season? Have your say below!
