Premier League: James Milner praises manager Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool extended their Premier League winning streak to four games this weekend as they fought back from 1-0 down to defeat Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. James Milner scored the winning goal as he converted a penalty kick on 84 minutes. The Reds are now just two points behind league leaders Manchester City after collecting five wins out of the first seven matches of the season.

"I've probably had too many managers but every manager is different," Milner said after Saturday's match at Swansea. "They all have their own strengths and weaknesses. Klopp is a top manager and he's definitely one of the best that I have worked with. His organisation sessions are different to anything else that I have ever experienced. His passion can only be a good thing. Sometimes, when he is bouncing on the touchline with enthusiasm, the only thing you could say is that he is maybe too emotional."

Milner also revealed what had happened in the dressing room at half time during the Swansea match as the Reds were trailing 1-0 at the end of the first half. "He held it in just enough," Milner said. "We knew he was angry, you could tell, but he still put his words across well. It's easy to fly off the handle and not be very productive. We know how emotional he is but he did a great job. He said the right things and we came out and performed how we should."

Liverpool are 4/1 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title this season.

    Milner has a good reason to praise his manager, he's in the starting 11 ; )
    I'm just kidding, Milner deserves his place in the squad and of course Klopp deserves all the good things which James had said about him.
    Liverpool looks good as ever and it's a serious title contender I think, not only that - they just play the most entertaining fottball in the league so far through the season.
