Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana claims that there is a lot of belief at the club and he expects the Merseyside outfit to do well in the 2016-17 season.
Even though the Reds started the new campaign with a difficult away trip against Arsenal, it was seen as a great time to come up against the North London outfit since they were suffering from a large number of injuries especially in defence. Liverpool were able to unleash the entire attack and it is highly unsurprising that Arsenal struggled.
Jurgen Klopp already has an impressive strikeforce in his hands with the likes of Philippe Coutinho strengthened by the arrival of Sadio Mane.Even though the club were only able to achieve a 4-3 victory, Adam Lallana claims that it has given the team a lot of belief. This opening stage belief has the potential to help the club do well over the course of the entire campaign or at least up until Christmas. There will also be belief within Lallana, who has taken no time to get off the mark of the season. Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane were the most impressive players for Liverpool on Sunday.
Maintaining this form will be the key for Liverpool as they take on Burnley in yet another away match for the club next weekend. “It was very entertaining, we started not so brightly but it’s always difficult coming to Arsenal.The manager had a few words at half-time and we came out brilliantly. We got complacent at 4-1 but we saw it out at the end.To achieve something special we need to be more disciplined defensively as a unit. We showed them too much respect first half. It was a bit tense on the bench in the last 10 minutes but it was nice to see the final whistle and go home happy,” said Lallana.
