James Milner has already broken two Liverpool records ahead of today’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.

The Reds midfielder is unsurprisingly in Jurgen Klopp’s XI again this afternoon as the club look to continue their superb start to the season.

In making his 100th Premier League appearance for Liverpool today, Milner actually makes two pieces of history.

Firstly, he’s become the first Bosman signing (a free transfer) to reach a century of appearances for the Merseyside giants.

Undoubtedly one of the best bargains in Premier League history, Milner has been a superb servant since he was snapped up from Manchester City at the end of his contract with the club back in 2015.

On top of that, the 32-year-old joins an elite group by becoming just the fourth player to make 100 appearances for three Premier League clubs, joining Gareth Barry, Gary Speed and Rory Delap.

He’s the first of any of those to play for Liverpool, so he’s really made his mark with these two impressive stats for LFC.

As well as 100 league appearances for Liverpool, Milner played precisely 100 league matches for Aston Villa, and 147 in five seasons with Man City.

He has also represented Leeds United and Newcastle in his top flight career.
