Adam Lallana says he's enjoying being Southampton's captain in the Premier League.

Lallana, who was called into the senior England squad for the first time ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine in September, is relishing being the skipper of the side - even during such trying times.

"I just take it in my stride really, it is my first season of being captain and I don't really know what to expect," he said.

"We have had a tough start but I'm just trying to embrace it really because there aren't many 24-year-olds who are captain of a Premier League team and I just want to enjoy every minute of it."
