Liverpool were in rampant form on Saturday in the English Premier League, destroying visitors West Ham United 4-1 at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are capable of exceptional attacking performances and they didn’t disappoint against the Hammers with their on fire front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all scoring alongside Emre Can.
While those four grabbed the headlines, it was a day that fans paid tribute to Liverpool’s more understated performers with the likes of Andrew Robertson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner all catching the eye for determined and committed displays.
Fans of the Football FanCast Accy Show will know that we tend to recommend a Premier League outright win treble each week. Those fans might also be aware that this coupon has paid out on many occasions—including the last PL game week!
Take a look at our latest top flight treble—as well as our very tempting EFL fourfold—in the latest edition of the show!
Many felt Milner was in fact man of the match for his dominating performance in the middle of the park. Some are even calling him the most underrated player in English football.
It’s clear that Klopp is getting the best out of the 32-year-old who, in the latter stages of his career, looks better than he has ever done.
Supporters took to Twitter to talk about his role in the Liverpool first team…

James Milner has been great recently. Yesterday was his best performance since he’s arrived here. Brilliant stuff #LFC

I'm absolutely fine with Milner starting every game instead of Wijnaldum from now on. #LFC

Milner was magnificent. Again. Our true captain. #LFC

James Milner appreciation team. By far the most hard-working and equally under-rated midfielder in the league. If Pogba was giving half the performances Milner does, pundits and fans would be losing their minds over it. #LFC #LIVWHU

Very good again from #LFC today, especially in 2nd half. Big shout out for James Milner, who won't get any headlines but was excellent in the midfield

I've given him some (a lot) of stick before but Milner was quality again today 👏🏻 #lfc
