James Milner was maybe alongside Dejan Lovren the most impressive player on the park against Manchester City.
The Englishman toiled against his former side in midfield, covering more ground than any other player on the pitch. In his own box, he made blocks, interceptions and clearances, especially in the first-half in which City were rampant.
But by the second he was able to control the game more, playing more passes and occasionally breaking through midfield as well.
Milner is 32, but he’s got the body of a 27-year-old. He’ll be a key member of our squad for years going forward at his current rate.
If anything, it seems like he’s getting better.
