Milner has made only two substitute appearances so far under new manager Manuel Pellegrini.
"Every player wants to play. I'm lucky to be at a massive club like City and there's a lot of competition for places. That will only make me a better player. With the amount of games we've got coming up, I'm sure I'll get a lot of games this season. Then it's down to me to perform in those games. The team is the most important thing.
"You want to contribute and play all the time but as long as you're winning games, that's all that matters."
