Liverpool fans rave about ‘boss’ midfielder James Milner after beating Bayern Munich

Liverpool booked their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals by beating Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night – and many of the club’s supporters hailed midfielder James Milner for his performance.

The Reds went into the Champions League second leg tie with a goalless scoreline from Anfield, but produced a memorable 3-1 away victory against the Germany club.

Sadio Mane put the Merseyside club in front with a stunning chip, before Joel Matip was unfortunate to score an own goal before half-time to level it up.

But Jurgen Klopp’s team went up a gear in the second period, as Virgil Van Dijk’s header and a second from Mane made sure of progress to the next round.

A selection of Liverpool fans were blown away by Milner’s contribution, as he once again proved his tireless work-rate in the centre of the park.

The 33-year-old English midfielder covered the entire pitch for the Reds and also popped up with an assist to his name, with Van Dijk powering in his corner.

Milner’s spot in the starting XI isn’t always guaranteed, but Klopp turned to him for the big occasion on the European stage and he retuned the favour.
