The retired England international produced a brilliant performance alongside Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final last week.
The trio provided the Liverpool FC team with a platform to secure a commanding 3-0 lead in the first leg at Anfield following goals from Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Former Manchester City midfielder Milner got the better of his rivals Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva to prevent the Citizens from registering a shot on target on Merseyside.
Liverpool FC signed Milner in a free transfer from Manchester City in the 2015 summer transfer window under Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers.
The German head coach has placed his faith in Milner despite the ex-Leeds man being something of an unsung hero in the Liverpool FC team.
But Arsenal legend Merson was keen to highlight the 31-year-old’s valuable contribution to the Liverpool FC side.
“Milner makes a difference,” Merson told Sky Sports. “When he is in the team, he is more of a solid team. He has been around a long time. He knows when to drop off.”
Klopp used Milner in an unorthodox left-back role throughout the 2016-17 due to Alberto Moreno’s erratic performances in the full-back role.
Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table but level on points with Tottenham Hotspur.
