Marsh highlights Allen revival at Liverpool

Liverpool first team coach Mike Marsh feels Joe Allen has thrived in their diamond formation.

Marsh is a former midfielder himself.

He told liverpoolfc.com: "He has come in and played in a diamond, which is a formation in which you have to do a lot of running. He has put the yards in, but when he's on the ball as well, he's been excellent. The last couple of games have been really good. He has come from Swansea and, with no disrespect to Swansea, it's not the same as playing under the pressures at Liverpool, where everything is scrutinised globally, not just nationally. He has taken his time to settle in and has had an unfortunate time with injuries; he seems to have overcome them and is playing really well."
