Adam Lallana opens up on whether something is "going wrong" at Liverpool

Adam Lallana insists that "nothing has been going wrong" at Liverpool , despite the club's recent dip in form.

The runaway Premier League leaders followed-up a poor display against Watford over the weekend with a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

It was the Reds' third loss in their last four games in all competitions, but Lallana said there is no particular reason for the slump.

“Nothing has been going wrong,” Lallana told BBC Sport (via the club's website ) when asked for possible reasons behind the club's recent form. "You can always lose games,

“It’s about us just staying together, sticking to what we’ve done over the course of the last four or five years since the manager has come in and react. Simple as that.

“We’ve got another game at the weekend – I’m sure you’ll see a big reaction from the lads and hopefully we get the win.”

Liverpool manager Klopp freshened things up and made seven changes to the side that was beaten 3-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

However, his side fell behind after just 13 minutes when Adrian spilled Willian's powerful effort into his own net just moments after producing an excellent stop to deny the Brazilian.

The Reds had chances of their own in the first half and forced some good saves from Kepa Arrizabalaga on his return to the Blues' starting XI.

However, the visitors struggled to create many clear opportunities after the break and Chelsea were able to double their lead just after the hour mark through a superb solo goal from Ross Barkley.

“There were big moments in the first half where we failed to score,” said Lallana.

“It felt like an end-to-end game, a typical cup tie – probably good for the neutral. [But] we’re disappointed not to score.

“The second half started well, there were a couple of breaks in play and it felt like we lost our momentum a little bit.

“A couple of mistakes and if you let a good team like Chelsea counter on you like that, they’re going to have chances. We’re bitterly disappointed with the result. Credit to Chelsea.”
