James Milner has been Liverpool's best player this season

After arriving on Merseyside last summer as a free agent, James Milner has proved one of Liverpoool's best transfers in recent windows.

To supporters' joy, it took little time for the former Manchester City midfielder to turn himself into a crucial player at Anfield, shouldering the responsibility of captaincy in Jordan Henderson's absence.

The England international deserves the utmost praise for his continued efforts and contributions on the pitch; Milner's tally of three goals and six assists in the league doesn't begin to illustrate the impact he's made since signing.

His expert movement and positioning, quality link-up play, accurate passing - both short and long - and crossing have all been instrumental, even despite the club's lowly position of ninth in the Premier League.

Perhaps most importantly, Liverpool's vice-captain has proved himself one of few capable of stepping up to the plate during times of adversity.

The Reds have often proved uninspiring going forward, yet Milner held his nerve to score a vital penalty in a 1-0 victory over Swansea in November, whilst providing a brilliant cross for Roberto Firmino against Sunderland last weekend as the Reds struggled to break the deadlock.

At the other end of the pitch, Milner has been equally as impressive. The Englishman is widely renowned as one of the Premier League's hardest working players and hasn't failed to live up to the billing this season.

The 30-year-old gives his all throughout the whole 90 minutes, both going forward and tracking back; his defensive discipline has played a huge part in Jurgen Klopp's high-pressing style of play.

Milner's quality, devotion and fantastic work ethic has seen the midfielder become a role model at Anfield, inspiring through his consistent performances and never-say-die attitude.

And whilst 13 Premier League games still remain, there's little doubt the England international is deserving of Liverpool's Player of the Year at this stage of the campaign.
