Can you name Liverpool’s XI from James Milner’s official debut in 2015?

On 9 August 2015, James Milner made his official Liverpool debut, helping the Reds to a 1-0 win away at Stoke City. 

After rejecting the offer of a new contract from Manchester City, Milner decided to join Liverpool on a free transfer that summer.

He went on to win everything there is to win with Liverpool, making over 300 appearances for the club, but we’re asking you to name the XI that Brendan Rodgers picked to start against Stoke. 

“No, but it would be interesting to look at Luka Modric. Is he not 36 as well?” Rodgers’ successor Jurgen Klopp said in April 2022 when asked if he was aware of a fitter veteran than Milner.

“It was obviously a good generation. It’s difficult to be fitter than Milly.

“He’s a role model. I have told him, I can tell the whole world – nothing we have achieved in the last few years would have happened without James Milner, it’s as easy as that.

“Whether he was on the pitch or not, he’s set standards in a way not a lot of people can set standards, and it educated all of us.”
