James Milner: Liverpool’s future exciting under Jurgen Klopp

James Milner says Liverpool must keep working hard and improving

James Milner says Liverpool have an exciting future under new manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds climbed up to sixth place and moved to within six points of joint leaders Leicester City and Manchester City following Sunday’s 1-0 win against Swansea City at Anfield.

It is exciting times for everyone, if we keep working hard, keep improving, keep doing our job then hopefully we can be successful

Milner, who moved to Liverpool on a free transfer from the Citizens in the summer, dispatched the winning penalty after Neil Taylor was adjudged to have handled Jordon Ibe’s cross.

Liverpool have lost just once in 11 games since Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers in October, notching up memorable wins at defending champions Chelsea and title favourites City.

And Milner, who has captained Liverpool in the absence of injured Jordan Henderson, challenged the Reds to still be in all the cup competitions next February.

“I think it is a talented squad of players, we have a great mix of youth and experience and obviously a new manager, the stadium is being upgraded as well so I think it is a great time to be involved at the club,” Milner told Sky Sports News.

“It is exciting times for everyone, if we keep working hard, keep improving, keep doing our job then hopefully we can be successful. We just want to keep improving, playing as well as we can and getting the wins on the board.

“Hopefully [we can] get into January and February and still be in all the cup competitions and give ourselves a shot in one of the cups, see where we are in the league and assess it from there.”

Liverpool make the long trip to Southampton for their League Cup quarter-final at St Mary’s on Wednesday night.
