Lallana was outstanding in victory at Cardiff City.
"It was an unbelievable performance. Itâ€™s week in, week out,â€ť Rodriguez told the Daily Echo. â€śHeâ€™s a great player and it was nice he set me up.â€ť
Only 48 hours earlier, on Christmas Eve, Lallana had married his fiancĂ©e, Emily Jubb, making it a week to remember for the 25-year-old.
â€śWhen I went in the next day I just congratulated him,â€ť said Rodriguez. â€śIâ€™m so happy for him, theyâ€™re a lovely couple. â€śItâ€™s a nice thing. Heâ€™s a good lad and heâ€™s got a good family.â€ť
