Milner insists Liverpool will bounce back from embarrassing Aston Villa loss

James Milner insists Liverpool will bounce back from their embarrassing loss to Aston Villa.

The reigning champions were blown away with a 7-2 defeat at Villa Park last Sunday, ending their perfect start to the Premier League season.

"We need to stand up, take everything on the chin, stick together and bounce back...and we will #ynwa."
