James Milner delivered a legendary pre-match team talk before the game today, then showed why he’s captain around the hour mark with a sensational goal-line clearance.
Fabinho had given the ball away centrally, and Ryan Fraser got through on goal – with the Scot lobbing Adrian brilliantly.
The entire ground was waiting for the net to ripple, but somehow, left-back Milner covered and kicked the ball away from the goal.
It’s genuinely the best clearance of its type we can remember seeing in many a year.
