Honours: Premier League (2020), Champions League (2019), UEFA Super Cup (2019), FIFA Club World Cup (2019)
James Milner’s five seasons with Liverpool have yielded four major trophies: the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.
Appointed vice-captain upon his arrival from a successful stint with Manchester City in the summer of 2015, Milner’s leadership, experience, professionalism and versatility make him an integral member of Jürgen Klopp’s squad.
While central midfield is his favoured position, Milner - who won 61 England caps during a seven-year international career - regularly fills in elsewhere for the Reds, perhaps most notably in 2016-17, when he spent the entire season as Klopp’s first-choice left-back.
A veteran of more than 500 Premier League appearances, Milner’s enduring importance to Klopp is evidenced in the fact that he signed a new contract with the club in December 2019 and made 82 appearances across all competitions in 2018-19 and 2019-20, scoring 11 times.
Eight of those goals came from the penalty spot, and Milner’s expertise from 12 yards means he is established as the Reds’ first-choice taker.
