In what was a masterful performance from Milner, who controlled the tempo of the game, created chances, delivered accurate crosses and covered every blade of grass on the pitch – something fans have become accustomed to.

The former England international was rightly named the Sky Sports man of the match. Check out an overview of his commanding display below:
