However, midway through the second half, Lallana was clattered Tottenham's George Marsh and the England global didn't take too kindly to the challenge.
Lallana took issue with the heavy challenge and immediately attacked the Spurs player. He responded by racing after Marsh and grabbing him from behind, with images showing Lallana grappling him by the neck.
Trailing Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at the time, Lallana scarcely had to wait for the referee to show him the red card before making his way down the tunnel.
We will help Mahrez 'come back with a smile' says Claude Puel

"I have never seen Adam react like that", said Critchley.
Lallana has started just one game all season and made a paltry five substitute appearances, his last of which came against Swansea City on the 22nd of January. It was ironic as we were just about to bring Liam Millar on.
Lallana's dismissal was not the end of trouble for Liverpool that night as they went down to nine men later when George Johnston was sent off on 87 minutes.
