James Milner hailed a ‘brilliant’ performance from Liverpool after Saturday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield.
But the No.7 admitted that he could not shake a feeling of regret over the Reds’ failure to produce a similar display against Leicester City earlier this week.
Jürgen Klopp’s team exorcised the ghosts of Monday’s defeat at the hands of the Foxes as Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane struck in the first half, and Georginio Wijnaldum calmed the hosts’ nerves in injury time.
However, speaking after the match, Milner refused to get carried away, insisting he will only be truly happy when he and his teammates can hit such heights with greater regularity.
