LFC Advent Calendar: 3 – Paul Konchesky

I'd just like to start this piece by thanking Andy Robertson for finally solving a problem the club has had since John Arne Riise's departure in 2008. After almost ten years of struggles, the left-back position at Anfield finally seems to be sorted. But in those ten years we as fans have certainly seen our fair share of average left-footed defenders enter (and exit) the club.

Also, with captain Jordan Henderson suspended following his sending off against Watford last weekend, Alisson's fellow Brazilian Fabinho may also play against the Toffees.

The Curious Case of James Milner

Scotch, cheddar cheese and a 32-year-old hard-working Yorkshireman. Three items you'd only see placed together if you were attending a work Christmas party in Sheffield.

With 490 Premier League appearances, 61 caps for England and 2 Premier League winners medals, James Milner has achieved a lot so far ...
