Liverpool hero John Aldridge has insisted Adam Lallana 'is like a different player' under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp. 

Writing in his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge has suggested, however, that the England international must now add more goals and assists to his game as he goes in search of success on Merseyside. 

Lallana enjoyed a fine afternoon as the Reds thumped Manchester City by four goals to one on Saturday and Aldridge certainly feels that the talented playmaker can come to prominence at the club sooner rather than later.

The former Reds striker has also insisted that he's never seen Brazil ace Philippe Coutinho 'work so hard' for the team. 

"I’ve never seen Philippe Coutinho work so hard and Adam Lallana is like a different player. With Lallana now it’s just about adding more goals and assists to his all round play," wrote Aldridge. 

"Just a little bit more creativity and he’ll be back to that player we saw a couple of seasons ago."

Classy trio 

Despite a wonderful victory against Manchester City, the Liverpool faithful mustn't get too excited just yet. There's still work to be done, of course; Klopp's side are by no means the finished article and must start to prove their credentials on a consistent basis. 

But the impact of Klopp is there for all to see. The trio of Lallana, Coutinho and Firmino linked up brilliantly at times on Saturday, so there's reason to be hopeful that the club's creative stars can produce the goods week in, week out under the enigmatic coach. 

Of course, with Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge in the squad, Klopp has a number of exciting attacking options at his disposal.
