Magic Milner

Liverpool made a shrewd signing last year when they acquired the services of England international James Milner from Manchester City.

The experienced utility man wanted regular football and felt a move away from the Etihad was the only way he would get to play more often.

Brendan Rodgers was the Liverpool manager at the time when he arrived at Anfield, but he has flourished under current boss Jurgen Klopp.

The German loves players that have an abundance of energy and work their socks off and Milner is thriving under the leadership of Klopp.

After a good first season at Anfield playing in numerous midfield positions Klopp has transformed Milner into a left-back.

The left-back berth had been a problem position last season with Alberto Moreno heavily suffering much criticism after some poor performances.

Many supporters including myself thought that Liverpool had to dip into the transfer market to buy a left-back, but Klopp had other ideas and Milner has been superb so far this season playing in his new role.

Milner has such a great attitude that he can do a job anywhere in the team but Klopp’s decision to play him at left-back is an inspired one.

The former Manchester City player has been solid defensively and instrumental offensively by producing numerous assists, he’s also contributed goals and has scored three penalties in his last two games.

Milner is arguably Liverpool’s best player this season and who would have thought it playing left-back other than Klopp ?
