Lallana: Liverpool must right wrongs against Ludogorets

The Merseyside outfit lost their fourth consecutive game on Sunday, a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, and the midfielder is desperate for the club to prove their worth in Europe

Adam Lallana has urged Liverpool to “fight for their lives” when they face Ludogorets in Wednesday’s crucial Champions League clash.

The Reds’ disappointing start to the season continued when they suffered a 3-1 Premier League defeat at Crystal Palace on Sunday – their fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions.

Liverpool now turn their attention to a trip to face the Bulgarian champions in a Group B encounter with their Champions League fate at stake.

The Merseyside outfit have collected three points from their opening four games in the competition and sit three points behind Basel in the battle for second place and Lallana has urged his team-mates to put on a good performance for everyone linked to the club. 

He told the club’s official website “It was disappointing, especially after going in front so early. It was a great platform for us to push on and control the game.

“But we didn’t do that – we take full responsibility for that. We need to stick together. It’s as simple as that. When you’re having a tough time as a team, you all need to stay together – you can’t start becoming individuals.

“We win and lose as a team; we need to stay together, keep fighting and keep working for each other. We have got a tough game on Wednesday so we all need to be together for that one.

“We need to win to stay in the competition, so the lads will be fighting for their lives to do that. It’s important, not just for ourselves, but for the fans, the manager and everyone involved with Liverpool football club.”
