    James Milner injury latest as Liverpool star eyes big return

    Milner was forced off just 28 minutes into Sunday's showdown against Man City

    James Pearce

    Liverpool midfielder James Milner is facing a spell on the sidelines following the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Manchester City at Anfield.

    The Reds' vice-captain underwent a scan which confirmed there was only minor damage.

    However, Milner isn't expected to be fit for the Premier League trip to Huddersfield Town on October 20. He's also a major doubt for the following games against Red Star Belgrade and Cardiff City.

    The 32-year-old retains hope that he can get back before November but much depends on how he responds to treatment.


    Liverpool travel to Arsenal on November 3.

    He tweeted: "Thanks for all the messages. Hopefully I won’t be out for too long #YNWA."

    Jurgen Klopp happy with Liverpool's points return heading into the 'senseless' international break

    Milner was forced off just 28 minutes into Sunday's showdown with his former club. His decision to go straight off as soon as he felt the discomfort ensured he didn't suffer a more severe injury.

    His absence will force Jurgen Klopp into a midfield reshuffle with summer signings Naby Keita and Fabinho in contention to return to the starting line up, along with Adam Lallana, who is back in full training after injury.

    He's played a huge amount of football this season and is probably at the limits of his bodies capabilities but hamstring injuries can happen at any time regardless of how much or how little you've been playing so I'm not reading too much into it. He'll be sorely missed and has been an absolute revelation these past two seasons, I never expected him to be as good at this point in his career but he's showing little sign of slowing down.

    Yeah would love to have him back and fit for Arsenal but only if he's fully recovered. Can't have him rushing back then being out again. He's impressed me a lot the last couple of years.

    Not sure how he was back so quick, the man is a machine. Think he knows he probably has gotten a new lease of life in last 12 months and he going to get every last ounce out of his body for the next two seasons. In fair enough for a lot of the time at City, he was like there 12th or 13th man and never really a definite starter. Might explain how he still has so much left to give. He is playing top level football for 16 years.

    He’s beast and carries an attitude that is old school and rare in modern footballers

    James Milner has confirmed he expects to return to action for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday night.


    The vice-captain missed the Reds’ 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday after picking up a minor muscle issue during the previous fixture against Napoli at Anfield.

    However, Milner is set to resume full training at Melwood on Tuesday and is confident he’ll be available for selection for the trip to Molineux.

    He told Liverpoolfc.com: “I just had a bit of a sensation in my hamstring at the end of the Napoli game and made the decision, the manager made the decision [to miss Sunday's game].

    “It was the right thing not to risk me at the weekend, so hopefully I’ll be fine for the next game.”

    I know the leadership debate has been done to death on here and I'd never for a second argue that Milner isn't one. But listening to The Anfield Wrap there and I know there was a few lads on her that said it too about how Milners performance at Wolves suffered because he was trying to look after the young lads. Thats not good leadership. It's like when they tell you in the case of emergency on a plane to put your mask on before your kids,because it's the right thing to do even if it goes against your instincts. It's a good example of how there's plenty of ways to lead and if taking responsibility for others performances did cause Milner to play poorly,then he didn't choose the right one.
