Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to their win at Tottenham, and they can’t quite believe how well James Milner is playing.
Liverpool earned another three points on Saturday, winning 2-1 at the site of last season’s worst performance.
The Reds were torn apart by Tottenham at Wembley last October, but were comfortably the better side on Saturday, winning courtesy of goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino.
While the attacking players were slightly wasteful at times, Jürgen Klopp’s midfield was absolutely brilliant, completing overpowering Tottenham’s trio.
Wijnaldum and Naby Keita are taking plenty of praise as well, but Milner was phenomenal, as the 32 year-old cemented his place in the starting eleven with another dominant showing.
The former Manchester City man made three key passes and an incredible five tackles (no other player on the pitch had more than four).
Fans have been heaping praise on their veteran midfield star, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
If Milner was a new signing, 23 and from abroad, fans would be calling hims world-class. He's been the best midfielder in the Prem this season.

He should be our captain. And over the course of Klopps reign easily out best player
