Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana admits successive draws in new manager Jurgen Klopp's first two matches have added a dose of realism to temper fans' sky-high expectations.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach's arrival at Anfield a fortnight ago sparked a wave of optimism on Merseyside with many fans predicting great things from the off.

It was never going to just change overnight. Maybe the reaction to him coming in was a bit over the top but he's a great manager who has had great success.

He's asking people to do different things to what they were used to so it will take a bit of time. I think in his first two games you have seen glimpses and moments of the style he wants to play.

It's not going to happen overnight, but I'm very confident we're going to succeed under him. The fans here demand success here and we want to give them that.
