By Will Butcher
Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have picked Liverpool’s Adam Lallana in both of their teams of the season so far.
The 28-year-old has been in superb form for both club and country this season, scoring nine goals against the likes of Arsenal, Leicester and Spain.
Pundits Neville and Carragher were in agreement on the Sky Sports website as they picked him alongside the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Alexis Sanchez.

Six goals and six assists for the Merseyside giants have seen Lallana sparkle under Jurgen Klopp, as he continues to provide the cutting edge in the final third.
Liverpool’s number 20 is the only English representative in both sides, with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford named in Carragher’s side after a wonderful start to the season for Sunderland.
Although unable to unlock the Everton defence on Monday night, Lallana’s side still secured a vital 1-0 win in the dying moments thanks to Sadio Mane’s tap in.
The win pushes them back up to second in the Premier League table, six points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Since his £25million move to Anfield from Southampton, 28-time England international Lallana has made 106 league and cup appearances for Klopp’s side.
In that time, he has scored 19 goals and provided a further 18 in assists and he will be hoping to add to that tally on December 27 against Stoke.
