first_imgLiverpool boss Klopp hails matchwinner Milner: Incredibly importantby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hailed matchwinner James Milner after victory over Leicester City.Milner’s 94th-minute penalty settled Saturday’s match and ensures the Reds go into the international break having won all eight of their top-flight fixtures so far in 2019-20.Milner had earlier registered a fine assist as Sadio Mane’s 50th top-flight goal for the club put the home team ahead, but James Maddison’s 80th-minute leveller appeared to have claimed a point for Brendan Rodgers’ visitors.However, Marc Albrighton’s foul on Mane in the area gave Milner the chance to win the game from the spot in the 94th minute – and the No.7 did just that, sending Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way with an ice-cool penalty.Klopp said, “I’m really not sure if I’ve said all the positive things about James Milner, no problem to do it again. Not only today, in general, how incredibly important he is. Today it was a super game but not even Millie can play 12 games in a row or whatever, it’s just too demanding and all that stuff. But yeah, very good performance, the pass for the first [goal] is just smart. “Unfortunately you need to have a few games in your legs probably to know about the situation, but we had a lot of these situations. We played a few smart passes for the boys. We obviously changed formation a little bit, we brought Mo in the centre, Sadio and Bobby more in the position 10 [against] the opponent who could train a full week to prepare for us – [that’s] what we cannot do.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img
