Reliable Milner sets new Premier League record


James Milner has set a new Premier League record for the most games scored in without being on the losing side.

The Liverpool midfielder opened the scoring in a 1-1 Premier League draw at his former side Manchester City on Sunday, converting his seventh penalty of the season.

Although Sergio Aguero hit back to claim a point for his side, Milner’s record of never losing a Premier League game when he has scored has been extended to 47 matches.

Of those appearances, 37 have been victories with the remaining 10 fixtures ending in a draw.

Milner’s Liverpool remain in the running for a Champions League spot at the end of the season, as they currently occupy fourth place.

Manchester United’s win over Middlesbrough cut the gap to four points, however, with the Red Devils also holding two games in hand over their fierce rivals.
