(Video) James Milner forces brilliant save from Courtois with long-range Anfield curler

Posted by

James Milner got every Liverpool fan off the sofa tonight, after he curled an effort towards the top corner early on in tonight’s Champions League semi-final.

It looked like it would nestle inside the stanchion as it left his foot, but world-class Real Madrid stopper Thibaut Courtois used his right-hand to paw it away.

Milner was starting tonight ahead of Naby Keita and Thiago, with Jurgen Klopp clearly wanting a midfield workhorse on the field – and someone who can lead the side in the absence of Jordan Henderson.

It’s crazy to think Milner is 35-years-old when looking at the energy and pressing he provides every time he’s selected.
