James Milner and Jordan Ibe have been passed fit for Liverpool ahead of a tough test against Manchester City at the Emirates in the late feature match tomorrow.
Milner is the likelier of the pair to crack Jurgen Klopp's XI for the trip to the Etihad, where the midfielder last plied his trade. His versatility could see him in the double pivot behind the attacking three or pushed a bit further. That may hinge on whether Klopp puts his trust in starting Roberto Firmino in the attack, to join in with Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho. Ibe will likely serve as a bench option.

James Milner is expected to miss Sundays’ clash against Crystal Palace as well as the upcoming England internationals versus Spain and France due to a hamstring problem.

Milner was involved in Thursdays’ Europa League tie in Rubin Kazan but the 29-year-old was replaced on the hour. Originally thought to be tactical switch, the Sunday Express now reveal his withdrawal was because of injury. Details on the extent of the strain are not yet known although Milner will have two weeks to recover before Liverpool travel to The Etihad. His absence is likely to hand either Joe Allen or Jordon Ibe an opportunity at Anfield today in what could be Jürgen Klopps’ only change from the side which won at Stamford Bridge.

James Milner grabbed his first goal as a member of Liverpool, a game-winner, as Liverpool toppled Australian outfit Brisbane Roar, 1-2.

Brisbane scored the opener in the 17th minute but it did not take long for Adam Lallana to level things, curling a shot into the far corner of net, making two goals in two for Lallana, who scored against the Thai All-Stars earlier in the week. The game winner came in the 75th minute when Milner, who fed Lallana for the first goal, scored himself after nutmegging a defender and scuffing a shot that fooled the Aussie shot-stopper. The Reds continue their preseason tour in Australia on Monday when they visit Adelaide United.

Liverpool and James Milner have reached a compromise and the midfielder will join the Reds after his deal with Manchester City expires on July first.

Milner was a regular contributor for Manchester City this season and was very helpful at times. He has a diverse set of skills, that despite boring, are essential to any good club. The 29 year old will sign a long-term deal at Anfield after Liverpool beat Arsenal to his signature. Milner will partially replace Steven Gerrard, who is leaving for MLS, but Liverpool will need a lot more help if they lose Raheem Sterling as well.

James Milner is a target for Liverpool this summer, as his veteran leadership would be a welcome replacement for the departing Steven Gerrard.

Milner represents as close to a Gerrard replacement as one could conjure. A central midfielder, England international veteran with set piece skills in his locker, an engine-like stamina and the ability to be influential in both attack and defense. Jordan Henderson took a massive step forward last season to show that he can accomplish all this criteria but it doesn't hurt to have competition and both could wind up regulars in the XI should Milner join the club.

James Milner will join Yaya Toure as missing from Manchester City's midfield against West Brom to kick off Premier League Week 30 on Saturday.

Manual Pellegrini will be missing two of his more influential midfielders with Yaya Toure and James Milner both ruled out for the visit of West Brom. Tony Pulis' side have been piling up the points since Pulis arrived and making it difficult for opponents to score. City, when at less than full strength, have had troubles scoring so the absences of key midfielders may be more significant than it might appear if you just compare places in the standings.

James Milner picked up a knee injury last week and although the problem is not "very serious" the player has been unable to train and will not face Newcastle.

Aside from Milner there are no other concerns for Manuel Pellegrini as Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony return following their African Cup of Nations triumph. "Wilfried is an important player - he’s on the squad list for tomorrow. We’ll see if he starts or if he’s on the bench." Sergio Aguero has overcome a minor back problem and is set to start as City look to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

James Milner came on as a substitute and saved Manchester City at least some blushes as he hit a great free kick in extra time to earn a draw.

Manchester City can't afford to be dropping points at home to the likes of Hull City. While Chelsea were beating Aston Villa on the road, the Citizens were struggling to get so much as a point from Steve Bruce's side at home. Yes, Toure was still missing but Jose Mourinho, missing Costa and Fabregas, will have no sympathy on that front. Could City fall out of the top two? It certainly looks possible after two points from their last three matches.

James Milner scored an injury-time winner as his brace helped Manchester City come from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup third round.

Milner has been playing in a forward role in the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, and it was from that position he struck twice against Sheffield Wednesday. Manchester City failed to register a shot on target for more than an hour until Milner equalised by sliding the ball through the keeper's legs and he completed the win from close range in injury time, to celebrate his 29th birthday in style. David Silva and Samir Nasri started the game on the bench but were introduced in a second-half with their side behind, a switch that turned the game in City's favour as they progress to the 4th Round.

Manchester City midfielder James Milner has hinted that he could leave next summer if he does not get enough playing time this season.

This follows a story from earlier in the summer which had suggested Milner was ready to look for a fresh challenge. The brunt of the 28-year-old's frustrations are down to the fact he started just 17 league games during the campaign, and if a similar situation occurs this season then he's leaving himself free to move on when his contract expires next summer. However, if Milner can continue to perform at the level he showed against Chelsea in Week 5 then it could prove difficult for Pellegrini to exclude him from the City starting XI for the big matches.

James Milner inspired a superb Manchester City comeback to end Bayern Munich's record run of 10 consecutive Champions League wins.

Bayern were dominant early on as Thomas Muller struck before Mario Gotze scored to put the home side 2-0 up. The returning David Silva pulled a goal back from close range, Aleksandar Kolarov equalised with a penalty after James Milner was tripped before Milner's fine finish won the match for City. Manuel Pellegrini rested Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo, making the result all the more impressive.
