Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana believes his team need to be more aggressive in the way they defend corners after they conceded another goal from a set-piece against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Lallana also celebrated his 100th appearance for the Anfield club in the 2-1 win over the Baggies, and is enjoying his football on Merseyside.

"It's a disappointment to concede from another set-piece," Lallana conceded.

"It's no secret that we've let a few in this way, and we know it's not about individuals, we've got to deal with it better as a team which the manager has touched on before.

"It's a mentality thing - we need to be more aggressive, work on our starting posture but three more points is massive for us."

Despite being a childhood supporter of Everton, Lallana has enjoyed his time on Merseyside, and is thrilled to make his 100th appearance for the club.

"It's flown - time flies when you're having fun and doing what you really love," he said.

"I'm delighted to be playing in a team that's doing well, that really works for each other, and now we just have to be consistent."
