Video: Adam Lallana sent-off for attacking Spurs U23 players
Liverpool attacking midfielder Adam Lallana was sent-off after losing it in an under-23 fixture against Tottenham Hotspur last night.
The injury-hit England international was making his comeback in the game, but snapped after taking a blow to the back of the head in an aerial challenge with Spurs’ George Marsh.
Lallana responded by chasing after Marsh and throttling the 19-year-old midfielder.
He was duly shown a straight red card, before being dragged away from the scene by striker Danny Ings.

Lallana will not be banned for any first-team games, but a three-match ban at under-23 level could hamper his efforts to build his fitness and earn a first-team return.
