Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana believes that his side’s fortunes are finally beginning to improve after they equalised late to secure a 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday, the official
Martin Skrtel’s bullet header deep into stoppage time earned a point which took the Reds back up into the top half of the Premier League, but they are still nine points off a place in the top four, which is their minimum aim for the season having finished as runners-up last time around.
The team has struggled for results and performances since the opening day, particularly after Daniel Sturridge was injured at the end of August. Their faltering league form has been accompanied by disappointment in the Champions League, as they fell at the group stage in their first season back in the competition since 2009.
But two encouraging displays in the past week have raised hopes that the club could make a run for the top four in the second half of the season, and Lallana said: ‘We feel we’re turning a corner and getting a little bit of rhythm into our game. That (Skrtel’s) goal was huge for us at the end because we would have been thoroughly disappointed with losing, but it was a point, a good performance and we move on.
“We know we’ve played well, so there are encouraging signs and we’ll hopefully take that into the Burnley game.”
