Adam Lallana has spoken about his apology to his teammates after missing a crucial chance against Manchester City.
Liverpool drew 1-1 against Manchester City last night while Adam Lallana missed a glaring opportunity to seal the game. James Milner slotted his 7th penalty of the season before Sergio Kun Aguero saved the day for the Citizens at Etihad.
Gini Wijnaldum played a sumptuous chip for Roberto Firmino who alongside Lallana made it 2v1 against Willy Caballero. Firmino thought that Adam had slotted it away but the move ended with a miss of the season contender.

The England International has confessed his post match reactions to LiverpoolEcho team. Lallana confessed he got excited and took his eye off the ball. The midfielder is disappointed with his effort and feels absolutely gutted about it.
“My eyes lit up, I just thought to myself: ‘If I get some connection on this, it’ s a goal’, but it just took a bounce in front of me,” Lallana said.
The Post Match Apology:
Adam told what happened thereafter as the Reds were left to rue a stalemate that was built on a flurry of missed chances.
“Me being me, I went into the dressing room and said sorry to them all. That’s the way I felt. I put my hands up. To not hit the target, it was a chance I should have hit the target with and probably should have scored. I felt if we got the second, we would have put the game to bed.

“I apologised for not hitting the target but the lads were fine. It’s one of those things, isn’t it? They happen sometimes. It was a good point but I’m so disappointed not to score it because it could have been the difference.”
