Is Milner Still a Key Man at Anfield?

Is Milner Still a Key Man at Anfield?

James Milner is one of the most experienced players in world football. He may be 37 these days and coming to the end of his illustrious career, but the former England international still has a lot to offer for Liverpool in the coming months. In June 2022, Milner signed a one-year contract extension at Anfield, which comes to an end this summer. Having made his debut as a 16-year-old way back in 2002, Milner has had quite the career at …

Liverpool 1 - 0 Manchester City - PL Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 0 Manchester City - PL Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 9.0 Immense when needed, thoroughly dominated his box, and showed superb reactions to set Salah free. He’s been a rock this year,. The low one handed save wars critical and he showed why he’s the worlds best. James Milner - 9.0 A brilliant performance, and one which was needed. He stood up to Foden and didn’t allow him space or time to play. Was always a willing …

Napoli 4 - 1 Liverpool - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 2.0 Could do little with the surging ways Napoli came out, and both the two opening goals were clinical, though the second maybe he could have done better. Was hopelessly let down by some of his players. Was poor for the fourth, and even the penalty save couldn’t hide a bad game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 3.0 Was again unsure in possession through the first, short of one driven pass into Mo in the box. Was caught high …

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 5.0 Had an early scare, with the post coming to his aid. Could do little for the opening goal as United pulled the Reds backline apart. A great fingertip stop from Eriksen’s free kick stopped the home side doubling their lead. The second goal was a great strike, and though it would be harsh to judge him on the goals, he seemed hesitant and not his usual …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 6.5 Came in for some flak last week. He could do nothing for the opening goal, and was superb in denying Zaha shortly thereafter in a one on one. Had little to do, in another frustration filled game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.5 A rare poor outing versus Fulham, he looked to redeem himself immediately. He was eager in trying to unleash those ahead, and probably should have …

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Could do nothing for the opening goal, given the deflection. The first half was pretty routine from there. Did everything correct through a nervy last few minutes. Joe Gomez - 6.5 So disappointing to see this young man injured, again. Was lively and unlucky for the goal. Was part of the equaliser. Subbed - 45 mins Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 Gave good width, as Liverpool dominated the first half.His second half corner brought about Liverpools second …

Newcastle 0 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The nervy situations were inevitable, but this man dealt with such moments like the worlds greatest keeper should. The chances for Newcastle were limited, but everything was smothered by the giant Brazilian. Joe Gomez - 8.5 Effort and tenacity in abundance. He was up and down the line constantly, and looks like the relative freedom is being basked in. The odd cross field ball was on point, and the crossing was pretty good too. The defensive …

Observations: The Reds celebrate Jurgen's new contract with a win

Today Liverpool were the calmest ones in the room. Many fans will have been increasingly nervous as the seconds ticked by and the scoreline stayed at just 1-0, but despite a few misplaced passes, the Reds stayed as calm as you like, defended the space, and gave up nothing to see out the win. Newcastle had a measly 4 shots in the game, all of which were from considerable distance and didn't give Alisson much trouble. Joe Gomez, rotated in …

Observations: A Fun Little Kickaround

Well that was a bit of a lark, wasn't it? Liverpool made through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after an exciting 3-3 draw at Anfield with Benfica to finish 6-4 on aggregate. Jurgen Klopp named a heavily rotated side, and at times it definitely showed. After the match, the gaffer explained that he'd made a last minute decision to change the back line, so this 4, who'd never played a competitive match together, had 20 minutes to figure …

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings

Liverpool v Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 Back in nets, with some game time needed before the weekend. Had very little to do through the first half, other than an early and late flurry by Norwich. Wasn’t at fault for the goal, and produced a great save late on. His vocal leadership was needed. James Milner - 7.0 The vice captain, now confirmed as the back up right back, came back in. …
