Liverpool midfielder Milner: Every player wants to be playing more

Liverpool veteran James Milner admits he'd like to be playing more.

Milner has been restricted to just two Premier League starts so far this season.

He said: “I think as a player you want to play as many games as you can.

“Every time you get that chance to go out there and perform, you need to do it to the best of your ability and make it difficult for the manager to leave you it.

"We have a strong squad of players and the competition is strong in every position and that is what we need to push each other to perform.

“Having a lot of games is what happens when you're successful, we are lucky enough to have been that (successful) and we are still in all the trophies.

“We go out there to win every game that we can so we will try to do that.

“All the players are used to it (a lot of games), it doesn't make it any easier, the boys with the internationals and travelling and that but we have gone the distance in this competition for a couple of years so we know what it is all about.

“We need to carry on doing that, we need to keep looking after ourselves, have the luck with injuries and things like that as well."
