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.
