Joe Allen’s Liverpool performance: Graphics 0

Joe Allen may never be seen a justified use of £15m by Liverpool, but he’s become a very useful squad player this season and has - several occasions - done a very good job of filling gaps in Brendan Rodgers’ midfield.

He did so again on Saturday, and a gave a very accomplished performance against a competitive Southampton at St Mary’s.

Here are his graphics, courtesy of Squawka:
