Milner enjoying midfield return

James Milner is happy to be back playing in midfield
James Milner says he is now enjoying football again in his preferred midfield role with Liverpool after spending last season filling in at left-back for the greater good of the team.

Milner scored seven goals in 40 appearances for the Reds last season despite being deployed in a defensive role for the majority of the campaign, with Liverpool struggling for numbers at the back.

The 31-year-old has returned to his favoured midfield position for the current campaign and has started the last three matches for Liverpool, including the recent win over Huddersfield at Anfield.

And when asked if he was glad to be back playing as a midfielder, Milner replied:

“Absolutely. Last season I was asked to do a job and I did that as well as I could.
