Why This 32 Y/O Liverpool Midfielder Could Be Key To The Reds Winning The Premier League

Liverpool have made an excellent start to their new campaign after winning both their league matches against West Ham United and Crystal Palace respectively. Under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp and the leadership of James Milner, the Reds are looking like the closest contenders to Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title. 

A Proper ‘Character Player’ In This Liverpool Side

In the absence of Jordan Henderson from the Liverpool first-team, Klopp has decided to hand the captain’s armband to James Milner who has led his team well and has contributed at both ends of the pitch. He has worked tirelessly for the Merseyside club and has successfully shielded his defence when playing in a holding midfield role while also creating many chances for the Reds attackers in the opposition half.

Milner has also been excellent as a penalty taker as evidenced by his composed spot-kick under a hostile atmosphere generated by the Palace supporters at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

The midfield veteran’s playing style suits Klopp’s methodology to the T which is why he is performing at the peak of his career even at the age of 32. Milner could very well be one of the most underrated players in the Premier League right now. 

James Milner Feels Like The Gary Neville Of Liverpool

His tireless work ethic at the centre of the pitch often goes unnoticed while his effect at both ends of the field is undeniable. Milner has proven all throughout his playing career that hard work and commitment are the two hallmarks of his game. Even a ‘less talented’ player can succeed if he is committed to the cause and is willing to put in a tireless shift to make his dreams a reality. He is truly the Gary Neville of Liverpool in that sense.

Anyone associated with Liverpool FC knows the worth of having a James Milner in their team. The 32-year-old is consistent with his performances, and even when the going gets tough, the Merseyside club can depend on him to produce the goods on the pitch. His successful conversion of penalties and his eye to deliver the final pass are some of the things which Klopp’s side would be heavily dependent on, as they look to mount a serious title challenge in the English top-flight this season.

Klopp has now got a dependable spine in his Liverpool first-team with Alisson Becker, Virgil Van Dijk, James Milner and Roberto Firmino all set to play an integral role at Anfield during this campaign. It is clear that the Reds skipper is criminally underappreciated and has the potential to lead this Liverpool team to Premier League glory.
