West Brom striker Rickie Lambert is convinced that his former Southampton and Liverpool teammate Adam Lallana can become a “great, great player” under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Lallana has performed well in his first two matches under Klopp - although this fan tore him to shreds after the 1-1 draw against Rubin Kazan on Thursday night - following an underwhelming debut campaign with the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool splashed out £25 million for the England international, who has struggled to hit top gear at Anfield due to a combination of injuries and a lack of confidence, in the summer of 2013.

However, Lambert is convinced that Lallana can flourish under Brendan Rodgers’ successor.

"I think Adam will do really well under him," he told LFCTV. "I think he'll give Adam a more important role within the team.

"Obviously it's hard to become a regular in the Liverpool team because there are so many good players, especially in his position.

"But if he gets a good run of games I truly believe he could be a great, great player.

"Klopp will get the best out of him."

Lallana possesses the work ethic and quality to succeed

Lallana, 27, certainly possesses all of the attributes required to become a great player for Liverpool.

The England international is technically gifted, which allows him to both score goals and make them, plus he’s tactically intelligent.

Players who succeed under Klopp have to also possess the right work ethic - and Lallana, as he has demonstrated with both Southampton and Liverpool, is always willing to put in a shift for his team.

Lallana will be looking to continue his impressive run against his former employers at Anfield on Sunday.
