James Milner has not always been the biggest fan favourite at Liverpool during his two-and-a-half-year stay at the club.
The 32-year-old has spent the majority of his career playing as a winger, but upon moving to Anfield, he admitted that he had a desire to play more centrally in midfield.
During his time at Liverpool, the experienced player has been asked to take on various positions.
Last season, the former Manchester City man was used at left-back ahead of Alberto Moreno.
In the current campaign, manager Jurgen Klopp has not always included Milner in the first XI, but in recent performances, the midfielder has impressed.
In total, Milner has started just 15 games in all competitions, but in his last two outings he played the full 90 minutes.
In an interview with the club’s official website, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sung the praises of his hardworking teammate.
A large number of Liverpool fans agreed with the sentiments, and some feel that Milner is not given enough credit.
So consistent, such a hard worker, technically underestimated & a leader!

Months back, fans were agitated when JK said 'Milner in midfield is like a new signing' , I agreed with him then and I still do.

I am in for that! I like his loyalty to the club and his leading role in the middle pack! A leader no doubt! He's like old wine, getting better each passing day!

Totally agree. #Miller has not been there 100% all the time but when he is, he is the reason for the team success.
