Milner vs. Sterling Pt. 2

In the same fixture at Anfield on New Year’s Eve, James Milner put in an outstanding performance to shackle Raheem Sterling, but in this game he found it tougher to keep track of his former team-mate.

The City winger regularly found space in behind the Liverpool captain, and though he was flagged for offside on several occasions he aways looked dangerous.

Milner did manage to make a vital interception in the first half with Sterling lurking, and there were a couple of occasions where the left-back was able to stick a foot in, but despite the Liverpool man’s goal, Sterling will claim a victory in this particular battle.

The Liverpool No. 7 was lucky not to concede a penalty as he went through the back of Sterling during one of City’s first half attacks.

Milner was booed by the City fans every time he received the ball, but he was able to quieten them somewhat with his expertly taken penalty.
