Liverpool fans impressed by John McGinn, some think he could replace James Milner

Premiership Picks

John McGinn has only played five Premier League matches but he has already caught the eye of a few Liverpool fans.

They’re not alone, either, with Jurgen Klopp describing him as a “super player”, and some supporters view him as an ideal replacement for James Milner, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has largely impressed since he made the move to England in summer 2018, and last year scored six and assisted ten for Aston Villa as they were promoted, which included a goal in the play-off final.

He has adjusted well to the top-flight, too, with a goal and assist so far, and if he continues to develop as he has then he could be good enough to make another step up, according to some Liverpool fans.
