Adam Lallana is convinced Liverpool will continue to fight for each other and their ambitions through the remainder of the season.

The Reds are aiming to return to the top of the Premier League table against Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday after Manchester City moved to the top on goal difference.

Klopp’s men were obviously disappointed at the consecutive 1-1 draws against Leicester City and West Ham United in their last two outings.

And Lallana is optimistic the side’s collective spirit will soon see them back in the winning habit.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: “We do things off the pitch together, we fight on the pitch for each other and that’s really what is special.

“We’ve lost together, we’ve lost a Champions League final together, and moments like that make you stronger.

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint and there are always going to be little hiccups, positive moments, bad moments, injuries, illnesses, and suspensions. It’s about coming through it together.

“Media is a big part of the world – and of course, they have got to have things to talk about – so part of me is not surprised that it [Liverpool’s form] is a talking point from the outside, but there are times during the season – and in lots of walks of life – when we’ve got to block the noise out and come together.

“That togetherness is what keeps you fighting, keeps you focused on what needs to be done and what the important points are. That’s what we’ll be doing going into the weekend’s game.”
