Milner feels fatigue cost Liverpool as they are held to draw at Leeds United

Liverpool midfielder James Milner believes The Reds' Champions League draw with Real Madrid left them jaded at Elland Road on Monday night. Jürgen Klopp's Reds put everything they had into last Wednesday's quarter-final second leg performance against LaLiga giants Real Madrid at Anfield. It wasn't enough to stop Liverpool from going out but still left the squad lacking energy on Monday at Leeds United. Sadio Mané gave Liverpool a first-half lead but a late headed goal from defender Diego Llorente …

"It could have been a different story" - Milner laments Liverpool's loss to Real Madrid

James Milner says everyone at Liverpool has been left rueing their poor first-leg display which led to their Champions League exit. Jürgen Klopp's Reds lost 3-1 away to Real Madrid last week after a very poor performance on the night - a defeat they were unable to bounce back from on Wednesday at Anfield. Despite an impressive effort, the second leg finished 0-0 at Anfield and Liverpool are out of European football's premier competition. Speaking in his post-match interview, Liverpool …

Toothless Liverpool Exit Champions League After Real Madrid Stalemate

Liverpool exited the Champions League after a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid at Anfield. Trailing 3-1 from the first tie, the Reds battered the Spaniards for 90 minutes, but couldn't find a way to goal against the deep sitting and disciplined Spaniards.

Liverpool started the game with a breakneck tempo …

"It's no different. So, crack on." - Liverpool veteran insists he still feels as fit as ever

Liverpool midfielder James Milner says he still feels as fit as he did several years ago and sees no end in sight yet. Milner turned 35 back in January and is now almost six years at the club having signed during Brendan Rodgers' final few months in charge - the summer of 2015. It's hard to put a value on the experience and influence a player like Milner can have on younger professionals at a club. However, his presence has …

"Things aren't happening for us at the moment" - Liverpool midfield veteran tries to figure out reason for Reds slump

Liverpool's James Milner showed he is struggling as much as any of us to explain his team's current slump in form after another Anfield defeat. Fulham's Mario Lemina pounced just before half-time to drill a low shot beyond Alisson Becker and into the Liverpool net. It was the only goal of the game, giving Scott Parker's Cottagers a huge three points in their quest for Premier League survival. After the game, Milner was asked for his thoughts on where it …
Klopp's update on James Milner's injury

Klopp's update on James Milner's injury

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp confirmed that James Milner's injury could be a lengthy one following The Reds' 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Saturday. A crazy seven-minute spell late in the game at the King Power Stadium turned Liverpool's 1-0 lead into a 3-1 deficit. Mohamed Salah had put Klopp's men in front with a well-taken finish after some sublime play from Roberto Firmino to provide the assist. Leicester bounced back to win through goals from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and …
Klopp's Tactical Masterclass vs Spurs: Dual False-Nines

Klopp's Tactical Masterclass vs Spurs: Dual False-Nines

Inside of two minutes against Spurs, you could tell something was different. In previous matches this year, Jurgen Klopp had used Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri as attacking No.8s, with Thiago and Gini Wijnaldum anchoring the midfield.  In those games, the dynamic felt a little off and people kept getting in each other’s way. Thiago was carrying the ball forward and with there already being a more attacking eight in the system, it forced Roberto Firmino higher up the pitch. …

Reds' veteran midfielder says squad must learn to respond the right way to disappointments
