Lallana: We've turned a corner

Cape Town - Adam Lallana believes Liverpool's 4-1 win over Swansea City on Monday is proof the club have "turned a corner" following a rocky start to the campaign.

The Reds were expected to again challenge for the Premier League title this season following their runners-up finish last term, although they entered the recent round of top-flight fixtures 10th in the standings after winning just seven of their previous 18 outings.

However, the Merseysiders produced an inspired display against the Swans at Anfield this week, where Lallana bagged a brace to help hoist his side to within five points of fourth, and the England international is now looking ahead to a strong second-half of the campaign.

"The last two or three weeks we really feel as if we have turned a corner," Football411 quotes Lallana as saying.

"We've been picking up results and playing better and that was missing for the first three months of the season.

"Against Arsenal we felt hard done by to only get a point, we put in a gritty performance against Burnley (to win 1-0) and it was important we got the win against Swansea.

"We knew the Christmas period was a great chance for us to pick up maximum points and slide up the table and we are looking for more of the same against Leicester on Thursday."
