Adam Lallana was sent off while playing for Liverpool's under-23s on Monday, but he will not be in line for a first-team suspension, a Premier League source told ESPN FC. Lallana and Tottenham captain George Marsh, 19, collided while contesting for a ball in the air in the 63rd minute of a a Premier League 2 fixture, and the Liverpool man took exception to the challenge. The 29-year-old got to his feet and jumped his opponent from behind, putting his right hand around Marsh's neck while pushing the teenager's head down with his left. He was led away by teammate Danny Ings after being shown a straight red card by the referee and headed down the tunnel in the 63rd minute of Liverpool's 1-0 defeat at the home of Stevenage FC.
