Milner says Liverpool form is ‘not normal’ and he’s never seen anything like it

Liverpool’s James Milner believes their form is ‘not normal’ and that he’s never seen anything like it.

The Reds have won 27 of their 29 league games this season as they’ve built a mammoth 25-point lead over defending champions Manchester City .

Their only dropped points this term have come against Manchester United at Old Trafford and Watford at Vicarage Road.

They now need just two victories to secure a maiden Premier League title following City’s 2-0 defeat in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

Milner, who started for the first time in over two months in their 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, has been full of praise for his teammates.

The veteran said: "The best team always wins the league and that is a fact. It is so hard to do.

“Like I have said before, the amount of games we have won in a row, that isn’t normal.

"There is going to be a point where it is very very hard to win a game.

“I have been there. I have been relegated and you think it is just an impossible task to win a game of football.

"So you have to remember how hard it is and how competitive the Premier League is and every time you are not at that level you are going to get found out so we have to keep performing and keep pushing.

"I don't think that is complacency. We know that in every game.

“But when things have gone so well I think at times people think it is easy and it is not."

Milner believes such incredible levels of consistency this campaign have been taken for granted.
