Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is hungry for many more 'big moments' after scoring the Reds' equaliser against Manchester United on Sunday.

Sunday saw Jurgen Klopp’s men fail to win a Premier League match for the first time since March, but it was shaping up to be a whole lot worse thanks to Marcus Rashford’s contentious first-half effort at Old Trafford.

But Liverpool dug deep, pushed on and eked out an equaliser, with substitute Lallana ghosting in at the far post to seal a late 1-1 draw.

The 31-year-old's celebrations were an outpouring of relief as much as elation after a frustrating, injury-impacted stint, which may have restricted his game time but not his self-belief.

"I'm delighted," Lallana told the PA Media. "It's obviously nice to contribute.

"Listen, obviously I feel like I've been fit for a good year now, especially since coming back from pre-season.

"But we're European champions, we've got a top squad, so I've had to be patient for my chance but delighted to come on and make an impact like that.

"It's obviously nice to be able to contribute to a top team like this. I feel that's the first big moments for me this season."
