Adam Lallana sent off for manhandling Spurs player during U23 game

  • Adam Lallana

Lallana has struggled with injuries this season having missed nearly the entire first-half of the campaign with a hamstring injury.

Adam Lallana, Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke are all set to feature for Liverpool's U-23 side against Tottenham this evening.

Adam Lallana has been sent off while playing for Liverpool Under-23s because of an angry reaction to a challenge.

He raced towards the 19-year-old before grabbing him around the neck from behind.

"I've never seen Adam react like that", said Under 23's manager Neil Critchley.


Trailing Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at the time, Lallana scarcely had to wait for the referee to show him the red card before making his way down the tunnel.

Youngster Ben Woodburn, who came close to leave on loan in January, is also likely to feature against Spurs.

But he's probably not too fond of a first-team player attacking a teenager from behind with a WWE-esque move best characterised as a choke.

Liverpool finished the game with nine men after George Johnston was sent off for two yellow cards.

While this resulted in a three-match ban from Premier League 2 for the England International, it will not affect him in the first team.
