Liverpool midfielder Allen frustrated with injury situation
Joe Allen says being sidelined at Liverpool is frustrating but he is determined to win back his place in the Anfield side. The Wales international had a shoulder operation in March and then picked up a hamstring injury in September.
"I'd be lying if I said it wasn't frustrating at times," said Allen, the 23 year old.
"I'm working hard and waiting patiently for my chance, but Liverpool is a massive club and we are having a great season.
"The competition for places is really good and you want that at a top club and I have to work as hard as I can to get back into the fold.
"You want to see your team doing well, especially when you are out injured - the lift you get is from seeing your team doing well.
"Hopefully with the momentum we are gaining now we can keep going and in an ideal world I would like to be a big part of that."
