James Milner makes no excuses and demands more from Liverpool

James Milner makes no excuses and demands more from Liverpool

Lovren went down with a hamstring problem and Klopp was unable to say how bad it was, but with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip already out it's vital that he gets back into the side as soon as possible.

You would think players who are not getting regular first team football would run through a brick wall when their chance finally arrives, but that was not the attitude of some Liverpool players on Monday night and it was worrying to see.

It's a wonderful position to be in and as we have seen with Leicester and Chelsea in their Premier League title wins in recent years, having spare weekends to refresh players can be a decisive factor against rivals who are playing three games a week.

When Dejan Lovren limped off injured within minutes of kick-off, the Croatian was replaced by academy defender Ki-Jana Hoever (born January 18, 2002), who came on to make his senior debut at the tender age of just 16 years and 354 days. They played within themselves and that's not good enough.

The midfielder pointed to the performances of youngsters Rafa Camacho, Curtis Jones and Ki-Jana Hoever as bright spots for the Reds in the loss and tipped the trio for big futures going forward.

"You certainly couldn't attach any blame to the young lads".




"The goals we conceded against Wolves were really poor", Aldridge wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.

"It's disappointing but we have to make sure we recover and bounce back from this". It was my mistake for the first goal and it's cost us, if not it's 1-1 and we get a replay. They tried their hardest but they were let down by senior players who didn't give their all.

"It was a great hit but he shouldn't have been allowed to get the shot away".

The Reds travel to Brighton on Saturday with a four point lead over champions Manchester City.

With the Champions League not set to continue until mid-February, Liverpool can now just concentrate exclusively on the Premier League.
