​Liverpool star Milner names career best XI

Liverpool star James Milner has named his ultimate career XI consisting of players that he has played with and against.

The 31 year old has lined up with top-class players during his spells with Leeds United, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Players that he included on his list were Joe Hart in goal, Dani Alves (RB), Ashley Cole (LB), Jonathan Woodgate (CB), Vincent Kompany (CB),Steven Gerrard, David Silva and Andres Iniesta in midfield, Lionel Messi, Alan Shearer and Sergio Aguero who came in ahead of his fellow Argentina international Carlos Tevez.

One of the surprising inclusions in the team is Woodgate whom Milner played with during his time at Leeds.

Of his inclusion, Milner said: "He was a bit unlucky with injuries at the start of his career but he was a top, top player. He could read the game quick and was really good on the ball."
