In the day’s early kick-off, Liverpool cruelly stole victory from under the noses of Swansea City, leaving manager Francesco Guidolin hanging onto his job.
Liverpool came back from a goal down, and it was James Milner who sealed the win with yet another penalty.

The goal continues James Milner’s logic-defying renaissance under Jurgen Klopp’s tutelage.
James Milner created more chances than Juan Mata this term, made more assists than Mesut Ozil & scored more goals than Cesc Fabregas

The Yorkshire-born man has perhaps been unfairly labelled a utility man more recently in his career.
There's something of the Brownlee brothers about James Milner: stamina, will to win, no ego, Yorkshire, just keeps going, etc

And Liverpool fans couldn’t be happier to have him.

How Klopp has taken James Milner and made him into one of the best LB's in the League (RIGHT NOW) is beyond me….incredible free transfer.

The goal continues this weird scoring streak of Milner’s as well.
43 – James Milner has never been on the losing side in a @PremierLeague game where he has scored. Talisman.
