Why James Milner was furious with teammates during Arsenal match

When you have a compact formation you give the opposition the opportunity to pass into a certain place and then you press.

Alexandre Lacazette earned Arsenal a point at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, cancelling out James Milner's second-half opener.

Liverpool and City were neck and neck up until the weekend's fixtures and Jamie Carragher, speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, believes that supporters of Jurgen Klopp's side need to "relax" after dropping two points behind Pep Guardiola's team. This table at the moment is something that we want - to be at the top at the end.

And despite Eden Hazard's heroics for Chelsea, Crooks insists Milner has been the Premier League's best player so far.

Xhaka has had to deputise in left-back in recent matches as Arsenal suffer some bad luck in terms of injuries but he was back in midfield alongside Lucas Torreira in a good performance against Liverpool.

That's the only chance Liverpool have got, because City are better than them. He is a proper leader. I'm not sure if Leeds is famous for wine?

"I think he's really got that now under the new manager".

The game also extended this quirky, yet quite remarkable, record of James Milner. Obviously someone might write that he will have to play for England again.

"It's pleasing we are creating those chances, but we could have been a bit more ruthless and maybe not put as much pressure on ourselves not to concede to win the game".

The draw briefly took Liverpool to the top of the Premier League, before Manchester City's victory over Southampton on Sunday moved Pep Guardiola's side two points ahead.
