Liverpool fans have praised James Milner for his “relentless” performance against West Ham this afternoon.
Milner scooped the Man of the Match award as the Reds started the season in style with a 4-0 win at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah opened the scoring after just 19 minutes, before Sadio Mane made it 2-0 just before the end of the first half.
Mane added his second after 53 minutes, and Daniel Sturridge completed the scoring in the 88th minute just seconds after coming on as a late substitute.
But while their were fine performances all round the pitch, including those form Liverpool new boys Alisson and Naby Keita, it was Milner who stole the show with his tireless running in midfield and lung-busting bursts forward.
And the fans were full of admiration for the 32-year-old Englishman following his impressive display against the Hammers …
If Gareth Southgate had managed to convince Milner out of international retirement, England would be World Champions right now

James Milner is absolutely relentless.

Also, how is James Milner 32 years old?

Enough hasn't been said about Milner's rejuvenation at Liverpool. Looked like he was done as a top level player when he left City. Was one of the best performers at Liverpool-particularly in UCL- despite having to play multiple positions. Will be huge this season as well.

Thought James Milner was MOTM today. He is top class. One of the first names on the team sheet.

James Milner is actually Benjamin Button isn’t he?

Everyone’s excitement over the new players & an apparent ‘ageing’ James Milner gives us a fantastic MOTM performance. He’s the definition of a top professional, Yorkshire Modric

A lot of people will have thought that James Milner was finished here after playing left-back in 2016/17. But he’s worked his socks off and is a very valuable member of the squad. Never stops working.

Time won't beat James Milner. Milner will outlast time itself, on this evidence.
