Fans Are Furious With Adam Lallana's Comments After The Chelsea Defeat
Adam Lallana has received huge backlash for his comments after Liverpool were dumped out of the FA Cup by Chelsea - with one fan telling him to get out of the club.
Lallana started on Tuesday night as goals from Willian and Ross Barkley ended 'The Reds' treble dreams.
The England international explained that the squad are 'bitterly disappointed' at the elimination.

But that didn't protect him from Liverpool fans on social media who were quick to attack the 31-year-old.

Lallana has made 14 appearances in the Premier League this season but only three of those have been starts.
"There were big moments in the first half where we failed to score," he told BBC Sport per Liverpool's official website after the Chelsea loss.
"It felt like an end-to-end game, a typical cup tie - probably good for the neutral. [But] we're disappointed not to score.
"The second half started well, there were a couple of breaks in play and it felt like we lost our momentum a little bit.
"A couple of mistakes and if you let a good team like Chelsea counter on you like that, they're going to have chances. We're bitterly disappointed with the result. Credit to Chelsea."
It was Liverpool's third defeat in four games and when asked about the slump in form, Lallana replied:
"Nothing has been going wrong, you can always lose games.
"It's about us just staying together, sticking to what we've done over the course of the last four or five years since the manager has come in and react. Simple as that.
"We've got another game at the weekend - I'm sure you'll see a big reaction from the lads and hopefully we get the win."
Lallana is out of contract at the end of this season and Leicester City are rumoured to be interested.
