Liverpool midfielder James Milner admits he has been frustrated with results at Liverpool, but hopes the 3-2 win over Aston Villa ends their bad run.
Milner opened the scoring for Liverpool, finding the net in the second minute, as the Reds registered a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.
And Milner who assisted one of Sturridge’s two goals admitted to being frustrated with their four-game winless streak.
“It’s been a frustrating few games before now and I maybe could have been on the scoresheet before but I’m delighted to do that,” stand-in captain Milner told the club’s website.
“It’s all about the win today, it is nice to contribute and score but the win was vitally important.
“We’ve had 70 shots in the last two games and not quite had that luck so it’s pleasing to get a few goals today and I’m sure this win can kick-start us.”
“With the way we’ve been playing the last two games, we’ve been a bit unlucky with the shots we’ve had – we’ve dominated the games and conceded a few goals we can work on,” Milner said.
“The Manchester United game we probably didn’t play like we know we can, and that’s more disappointing.
“But I think if we know we’re doing the right things – getting the ball forward, dominating possession, creating chances – that’s the most important thing.
“Football is a crazy game, lots of things get said and it changes so fast.
“We just need make sure that we concentrate on what’s happening in that dressing room with the backroom staff, the manager and the players, we stick together and hopefully this can kick-start this next run of games for us.”
