Liverpool boss Klopp: Super Millie saved us

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to James Milner after their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Milner performed superbly while deputising for Andy Robertson at left-back and produced a brilliant goalline clearance in the second half to deny Ryan Fraser a certain equaliser.

Klopp said, "Having Millie not available and Hendo in the same time, pretty much not in the dressing room, is really not cool because the job they do is on the pitch mainly, but not only. So I'm more than happy for Millie that he had that situation; I didn't like the situation obviously but then when Millie saved it I was really happy about it. Super game.

"He told the whole world and their dogs that he doesn't like the position two years ago, but now from time to time he obviously likes it. He was really good and very important for us, so all good."
