Why James Milner is Liverpool's Champions League unsung hero

James Milner made his 500th Premier League appearance when Liverpool beat Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday.

When we look back on the 32-year-old's career, we could focus on the two league titles won with Manchester City, his 51 goals, his 80 assists or his versatility and reliability representing five different clubs across 16 years.

We could focus on that - but instead we'll take a look at his brilliant Twitter account.

Remember that time he joined Twitter in March 2018?

The Boring James Milner account, which often describes the player's chores, responded by tweeting back: "You know you've made it when someone makes a parody account of you."
