Liverpool marched on in their Premier League title challenge with an emphatic win over Stoke City and it was English midfielder Adam Lallana who triggered the comeback.
The Reds notched up a 4-1 victory against visiting Stoke City to take back second place from Manchester City. Liverpool went down to an early goal by Jonathan Walters, but Lallana sparked a comeback that saw the Reds smash in four goals to turn the game around.
Lallana has now notched seven goals and six assists in the Premier League this season, making him the most productive midfielder in the league.
The resurgence of the Englishman under Jurgen Klopp has been brilliant to watch, and Liverpool fans took to twitter after the game to hail his brilliance.

Lallana has added a cutting edge to his game under Klopp that has made a delightful footballer, incisive.

Mad how Lallana has produced more end product than Pogba this season while playing just as deep, if not deeper than him most matches.

Lallana is everything Pogba isn’t

If Pogba was having the season Lallana is the TL would be flooded with shitty highlight compilations with caption “Best CM in the world”

Lallana – 7 goals, 6 assists, DIDN’T COST £89m.
Pogba – 6 goals, 4 assists, DID COST £89m.
Pogba needs to get the prayer mat out pal. https://t.co/0yZo0IwqbM

Lallana has the most goals + assists in the league for a midfielder 🙌🏼 Didn’t even need multiple haircuts or the dab
