Liverpool fans are ecstatic this season and yet taken inherent views to all details as they anticipate for the first position this season. 100 per cent record in four matches is no fluke.
Though they welcomed Naby Keita, Alisson Becker and Xhedran Shaqiri into the team, and yet watched Sadio Mané, Salah and Firminho grabbed all the headlines, I still think that credits should be given to one player who united his teammates on the pitch. That man is James Milner. I guess you thought I was referring to someone else.
Well, Jurgen Klopp is a suave coach who pays attention to every microscopic detail on the pitch: he unarguably set up his team in a fashion that suits his tactics.
Adding James Milner to his first team showed how crux he was on the pitch.
In the meantime, the £120,000-a-week player has stamped his authority in the starting XI even though Liverpool bought Fabinho who is slowly integrated into the team.
The 32-year-old player has so far assisted 2 goals, scored one, recorded a passing accuracy of 90% and created 7 massive chances for his teammates.
Milner is not just a midfielder; his humility and level of professionalism has earned him a place in Klopp’s radar.
Two seasons ago, Liverpool were seen struggling for left-back after the out of form Alberto Moreno was kept out by his manager.
Then came in Milner. He took the position as his. Though there were concerns about his pace if he could cover up as fast as he could, owing to his strength and age, but he showed Klopp that “age is just a number”. His relentless strength and humility ensured that he surmounted all obstacles in his way.
Milner is as good as is number printed at the back of his shirt. He recorded 9 assists in the previous champion’s league in Kiev (highest in champions league history) and has proven to belong to the last men of the dying breed of highly professional footballers.
His presence on the pitch is a measure of how he connects the defenders to the attackers; opening oppositions defense.
Liverpool and Klopp should do all it takes to keep hold of him.
