Liverpool returned to winning ways in the English Premier League on Tuesday night with a dominant 3-0 victory away to Huddersfield Town.
Jurgen Klopp’s side knew picking up all three points was massively important after losing their last two matches and they delivered with a performance that their manager said was ‘exactly what we needed’.
The Reds are now five points clear of fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur having played one extra game, as they seek UEFA Champions League qualification once again.
Supporters had goal heroes Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Emre Can to thank for the win and while they grabbed the headlines, another dependable star also stood out for fans.
James Milner was excellent in the Liverpool midfield, producing his usual hard working performance and helping link defence to attack across the 90 minutes.
The veteran former England international continues to play an important role at the club, with some fans believing he is an underrated member of Klopp’s squad.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Tuesday performance…
If he was called Milnerino, we'd want him as captain and starting every week.
No frills, gets the job done.

He was great. Stuck in every passing lane. Didn't allow them anything easy.

And yet people still moan about him playing. Mr Dependable. Excellent tonight.

Very dependable and professional. Always does what’s asked of him and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. He’s a good influence on the team.
