Liverpool got back to winning ways in the English Premier League on Saturday with a convincing 3-0 victory over Huddersfield at Anfield.
After a slow first half, the Reds found their groove in the second, blitzing their visitors with three goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.
While those were the goal heroes, the Liverpool team was full of excellent performers with the likes of Joe Gomez shining in defence and James Milner proving he is still one of the best midfielders around.
31-year-old Milner has found his midfield chances limited over the last 12 months, instead regularly filling in as the team’s left-back. However, performances like Saturday’s will do plenty to convince Jurgen Klopp that’s where he should play regularly.
Fans were impressed with his work-rate and desire to bring Liverpool up the pitch in attack, many crediting him as the team’s top performer on the afternoon.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
3 reasons why Milner should always be on the pitch
1) His work rate throughout the pitch is incredible
3) he should always take the corner kicks (watch Firmino's goal) #LFC
