Liverpool trio set to feature for U-23s

Liverpool trio set to feature for U-23s

Grabbing Marsh around the throat, Lallana pushed the teenager's head downwards before players from both sides got involved.

Adam Lallana will escape a Premier League ban despite being sent off for violent conduct in an Under-23 game on Monday night. It did not go well.

Lallana and Tottenham captain George Marsh, 19, collided while contesting for a ball in the air in the 63rd minute, and the Liverpool man took exception to the challenge.

He needed to be pulled back by his teammates as the referee showed him a straight red card.

The England global was dragged away by team-mate Danny Ings before being dismissed.

However, Spurs were awarded a second penalty by the linesman after Van Dijk fouled Erik Lamela . But he [the assistant referee] obviously wanted to be in the middle of interest and now he is.

Lallana missed the Reds' clashes with West Brom, Huddersfield and Tottenham due to a groin problem.

He was played out of his usual position and while coach Neil Critchley was not exactly glowing about his performance, he insisted he has full faith the young Scot will kick on. As well as starting with Lallana, they also had Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke and Ben Woodburn in the first 11.

As some folks on Twitter pointed out, it seems a little lean that his punishment won't be carried over to the first-team.

Lallana, returning to fitness after an injury ravaged campaign, is a first team star and aiming to book his spot in England's World Cup squad.
