Adam Lallana's running stats: Liverpool midfielder defies fatigue

Adam Lallana injured his groin during England's draw with Spain last month

Sunderland scored two penalties to deny Liverpool victory at the Stadium of Light but nobody could question the effort levels of Adam Lallana.

The midfielder's marathon running stats have been a feature of Liverpool's season and the England international took that to new levels either side of new year.

After covering 12.88 kilometres in Liverpool's 1-0 win over Manchester City in the late kick-off at Anfield on New Year's Eve, he ran even further at Sunderland.

Lallana not only completed the 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw but he ran 13.22 kilometres in the process - once again far further than any other Premier League player on the day.
