Adam Lallana: A pleasure playing with Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert

Rodriguez capped a wonderful personal performance at home to Fulham at the weekend by making one goal for Lambert and heading home the other in a 2-0 win.

Meanwhile, Lambert, 31, has already made his mark at international level this season by scoring for England against Scotland and Moldova.

And Lallana said: "It's a pleasure to play with both of them. I've played with Rickie for four or five years now and feel like I know his game inside out and when Jay Rod's playing with confidence like that, there are not many better than him.

"He had a great first season and played without a care in the world against Fulham.

"He went on several runs, got his goal, went close with the bicycle kick... he works so hard so it's great to see him play so freely.

"He's been asked to play in numerous positions but goes out and gives 100 per cent regardless of where he's playing.

"He won't sulk, he won't moan. It's a credit to him that he can play in different positions and formations and just get on with it and give everything, no matter what.

"He's a top lad, getting the goal on Saturday was just what he deserved."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
