James Milner names area Liverpool have to be ‘stronger’ after confidence admission



Veteran midfielder James Milner spoke out after Liverpool drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League

James Milner has called on his Liverpool colleagues to show a stronger mindset following their defeat by Real Madrid in a goalless affair at Crystal Palace.

The stalemate saw Jürgen Klopp’s side squander the opportunity to build up pressure on Tottenham Hotspur, currently fourth in the Premier League.

But despite successive wins against Everton and Crystal Palace in the Premier League earlier this month, the Reds were unable to break the deadlock at Selhurst Park as Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo were dismissed by the carpentry and Vincente Guaita eventually of the second turn. half.

However, after the 0-0 draw, Milner admitted there had been a collective loss of confidence following the events of recent days, but called on his team-mates to rally.

“Obviously I think when things don’t go right, there’s obviously a loss of confidence,” the Liverpool vice-captain told “If things go well in an overall period and you have a game where you hit the post and it doesn’t come in or miss a pass, it doesn’t affect you that much.

“Obviously at the moment, with a little less confidence and some bad experiences, it’s probably dragging us down a little bit more than it should at the moment – and that’s something we have to try and fight. “It’s difficult when you don’t get the results, you want to see the good things in the performances. It’s important that we don’t resign ourselves too much to not getting the results and the things that don’t go well in the matches. We have to recover and be a little stronger mentally , and also see the positive sides of the matches”.

The Reds return to action on Wednesday night when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers in a game rescheduled from the start of the season. Manchester United then travel to Merseyside on Sunday afternoon and Milner believes it is important for his side to take the positives from their Palace performance ahead of a “big week” and not dwell on a missed opportunity.

“Every week is a great week. We want to finish the season on a high note, there are still many games to play. It’s a bit strange because normally at this stage of the season you’re probably a bit higher, but there are still so many games to play,” said the 37-year-old. “It’s important if we don’t get such results, let’s get rid of it, don’t be too depressed and disappointed about it

“There’s been some good performances there lately. There’s been a good 40 minutes or a first half against Madrid, a few sloppy goals, but otherwise it’s been a good 45 minutes. You come back second half-time and all good things are important.we remember that there have been good signs over the past few weeks. “This was a spirited performance away, it wasn’t our best performance, it wasn’t our smoothest performance, but in the end we reached a difficult point, kept a clean sheet, had many chances to win the game, not the our best.” but we could easily sit here talking about a gritty 1-0 win and everyone happy. So it is important that we do not always despise each other from top to bottom and stick together.

“You saw how many fans were here again today and support us in every game which of course is amazing. We know how frustrated they are because we are frustrated too but hopefully they know we will give absolutely everything and try so hard working as hard as possible. possible to get back in shape and finish the season well.”
