Loads of Liverpool fans have been reflecting on the weekend’s action, and they’re not too happy with the form of James Milner.
Liverpool returned to the summit of the Premier League on Sunday, drawing 0-0 at Old Trafford in a rather drab affair.
The Reds have now drawn four of their last five games in all competitions, and the front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have combined for just two goals across those four draws.
Who has the loudest fans in Europe? PSG certainly state their claim in the video below…
All three were ineffective again on Sunday, but the real problems are further back in the team, where the lack of creativity in midfield is a huge problem.
Milner filled in at right-back at Old Trafford, and the versatile ace had by far the most chances to create dangerous situations for the Reds, yet he couldn’t produce a single good cross. When he plays in midfield, his crosses and forward play are equally ineffective.
The 33 year-old has said in the past that he would like to move back to Leeds United after his time at Anfield ends, and fans are now discussing the prospect of axing him this summer.
Milner is a Jurgen Klopp favourite and for good reason, but the Twitter reactions down below suggest his time at the club is nearing its end…
I think he is still useful to the squad BUT I don’t think he’s gonna want an even more reduced role than he already has currently. Best all round if he takes one final challenge. Been a really good signing for us though.

His legs are gone sadly. Great servant, but it’s time

He should move on. He isn’t showing that maturity and surge we need. He’s wasteful no composure.

He’s overrated, with him and handerson playing together Liverpool plays bad without any rythm at all.

He should be moved

Way below par not just today but most of the season. Because he’s been such good steward of the club his age, lack of pace, mediocrity and poor play is often overlooked. Need to win the league so he can move on

Sell him on gumtree

I’ve had enough of the Brexit Midfield. Ship him out regardless of whether he can play RB or Keeper
