James Milner blasted Liverpool team-mates during Arsenal draw, says Klopp

James Milner blasted Liverpool team-mates during Arsenal draw, says Klopp

When you have a compact formation you give the opposition the opportunity to pass into a certain place and then you press.

Ultimately Alexandre Lacazette's excellent second-half strike cancelled out Milner's opener, and speaking to after the game, Saturday's captain bemoaned a lack of ruthlessness.

It was Darren Fletcher and Jamie Carragher in the Sky Sports studio for Monday Night Football this evening, as the pair took a scalpel to the weekend's Premier League action.

This staggering tally of goals in unbeaten games has stretched a whopping 16 years for five clubs - Liverpool, Man City, Aston Villa, Newcastle, and Leeds - dating back to 2002 when he bagged his first goal for Leeds at the tender age of just 16. One is talking - that's me - and sometimes before I start talking the boys have a few words and that's all. "Millie is a proper leader".

"At times he looked good on the ball, but a couple of times he got caught out of position". "A very good red one".

The game also extended this quirky, yet quite remarkable, record of James Milner. "That's a really nice idea". That doesn't mean that Liverpool can't win the league. "When you're 1-0 up in a game like that you need to see it out and we didn't do that", he said.

Emery's side had enough chances to emerge with all three points but the manager is pleased with the resilience and fighting spirit shown by his squad, especially Xhaka.

The former England global has been in stunning form for Jurgen Klopp's side this year as they plot to rival Manchester City for the Premier League title.
