Milner credits Villa midfield success to ex-teammate Barry

Aston Villa winger James Milner credits his form in central midfield to former teammate Gareth Barry, now of Manchester City.

Milner was outstanding for Villa in their victory over Hull City.

Milner has watched and learned from Barry - and the pupil could soon become the master.

"I have learned massively from watching Gareth," Milner said. "You've got to learn all the time from the top players and Gareth was a top player. With England, there are Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard and there aren't many better players in the world to learn from there.

"I've played in central midfield for Leeds once or twice and for Newcastle on occasions. If the manager decides to keep it that way then I'm happy playing there. You can get involved in the game."
