REVEALED: Liverpool signing Lallana was mad Evertonian

New Liverpool signing Adam Lallana is a boyhood Blue!

The former Southampton captain completed his move to Anfield yesterday.

And it's been revealed Lallana grew up supporting Everton.

Meanwhile, a quirk of the fixture list means Lallana and Rickie Lambert are likely to make their competitive debuts at home to former club Southampton on the opening day of the season.

"It would have been worse if it had been at St Mary's so I'm glad it is at Anfield," said Lallana.

"It is fate to be lining up against your former team-mates; Ricky said he would have bet his mortgage on it."
