Goal drought was never a worry for Lallana
6:00am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Football
Adam Lallana’s goal against Swansea marked his first strike in 13 games for Saints, but the midfielder has revealed he never harboured any concerns over the drought.
Lallana produced an emphatic finish in the first half on Sunday to set the team on their way to a third consecutive Premier League victory.
The goal was a richly-deserved reward for the captain, who was magnificent against the Swans and who has started the season in excellent form.
Lallana only found the net three times last term and is keen to improve his strike rate this time round, but he says that is not at the forefront of his mind.
“I’ve always wanted to add more goals to my game and I’ve never been worried about anything,” said the 25-year-old.
“I just want to continue working hard and being part of a successful winning team. As long as we’re winning games it’s not vital who gets the goals.”
Under Mauricio Pochettino’s guidance, Lallana believes he is discovering his best form.
“I’m working hard, the manager is pushing me harder and harder,” he said. “I enjoy working hard and working for him. He’s getting the best out of me and I just want it to continue.”
