Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson is happy Adam Lallana is overcoming a string of fitness issues and he was able to play well for his club.

Thanks to a late Adam Lallana goal, Liverpool was able to draw 1-1 with Manchester United in yesterday’s English Premier League fixture.

And for teammate Andrew Robertson this was a good sign that Lallana is leaving his fitness issues behind.

“Amazing, because he struggled with injuries, he has come back and got injured again and stuff like that, so he has struggled,” the defender was quoted by Goal.

“Adam feels it as well because you can see when he is injured.”

He explained: “Nobody likes it when you are injured, but he managed to pick himself up, he is now fit and he has been unbelievable this season in training. He has been giving 100 percent.”

“In the changing rooms before games, he is one of the loudest. He could easily be quiet as he is on the bench and not playing.”

“But the way he has conducted himself – and, to be fair, [along with] all of the lads who haven’t played as much as they would have wanted – Adam is a top, top professional and a top, top guy,” he said.

“I’m absolutely delighted for him that he could get on the end of it.”

“When he came on I thought he was brilliant and I thought he changed the game. To get that goal, it will do a world of good for him and his confidence and I think we’ll see a lot more from him,” he commented.

“There is a long, long way to go and there’s going to be twists and turns.”

“We are going [to] – and I’m sure everyone will – drop points up until the end of the season. It’s such a competitive league that it’s going to be so hard not to,” he continued.

“But we are in the middle of October and a quarter of a way through the season. Would we have taken a six-point lead? Of course, we would have, not even a doubt.”
