Following Liverpool's 1-1 draw away to Arsenal, the German singled out his veteran midfielder for both his performance and impact on the collective.

The Gunners showed grit and determination as they came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw against title-challenging Liverpool FC at The Emirates on Saturday night thanks to Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser in the second half.

"Maybe after Manchester City and Chelsea, today we are more near those teams, but we need this quality in every match".

"Usually the only one talking is me, but sometimes before I start talking the boys have a few words. Milly is a proper leader".

The 32-year-old remains a valuable figure when Liverpool absorbs and plays on the break. "A very good red one. He's getting better", Klopp joked.

"Millie is like wine, I like this idea as well". He wants to improve, and I think he can improve.

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.
