'Every Team Needs One of Him' — Liverpool Supporters Hail Star in Milestone Performance Versus Bournemouth

Share:

Liverpool went (temporarily) ahead of Manchester City to go top of the Premier League this afternoon after a fantastic display in a 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth.

Although Mo Salah will earn most of his praise after his hattrick (and rightly so), one fact that may go slightly under the radar is that James Milner made his 500th Premier League appearance at the Vitality Stadium, with his performance epitomising everything that is so great about the 32-year-old.

Milly slotted in seamlessly this afternoon, offering a constant outlet down the right and showed he can be a dependable figure to fill in for Alexander-Arnold over the festive period in the wake of injuries to Gomez and Clyne.

500 appearances in such a competitive league is testament to Milner’s professionalism and longevity and playing some of the best football of his career in his early 30s, Klopp will feel extremely fortunate to have such a figure around the club.
