James Milner is 32-years-old and arrived at Liverpool for precisely nothing in 2015.
Three years on, he’s the first name in our midfield trio, despite £40m arrival Fabinho and £50m signing Naby Keita.
And do you know what? He absolutely deserves it.
Milner was the best player on the park at Wembley v Spurs and he’s just put in an insane 45 minutes against PSG to boot in the Champions League.
He set the tone early on with an epic challenge on Neymar, before making countless other tackles and interceptions.
Milner then converted his penalty to make it 2-0 Liverpool, although annoyingly the French pulled one back late on.
James Milner is the most under appreciated midfielder in Europe.

James Milner has scored but, more than anything, he has been outstanding yet again so far tonight. Proof that if you look after yourself, work hard and listen to your manager, you can be brilliant deep into your career.

In a bling-soaked football world filled with Lamborghinis, Supermodels, and piles of cash, James Milner might just be the coolest player in the game by virtue of just being himself

Jimmy Milner, there. The cool as f**k, ice-cold, terminator-esque, goal-scoring, beast. Love him.

Milner deserves that. He’s been excellent today and unreal this season.

GOAL! James Milner converts!
Of course he did. With a minimum of fuss.
Give him the Ballon d'Or.
