Adam Lallana sent off Liverpool

Playing against Tottenham's reserves in an under-23 game, the 29-year-old Liverpool midfielder ambushed a player 10 years his junior like a fourth-grade bully would a second-grader on the playground.

Red cards for violent conduct carry a minimum three-week ban but can be extended in extreme cases, although the suspension will not count for first-team matches.

Lallana was given a run-out with the Under-23s as part of his return from injury, with Jürgen Klopp keen to ease him back into full competition after suffering two injury setbacks this season.

But the England global reacted furiously to a mid-air challenge by Spurs' George Marsh, 19, midway through the second half of the Premier League 2 clash, which Liverpool lost 1-0.

Youngster Ben Woodburn, who came close to leave on loan in January, is also likely to feature against Spurs. Klopp had spoken about Lallana's absence from the first team last week.

He was then shown a straight red card.

"Because of Adam's quality and attitude in training, it looks immediately like we can put him in, but physical-wise he's not fit."

Liverpool had another player sent off just before time and finished the match with nine men; Tottenham U23s won the game 1-0 off of a goal from promising midfielder Jack Roles.
