Liverpool star James Milner has made a vow after reaching a milestone in the win over Chelsea.

The Englishman came off the bench for Jurgen Klopp’s side to help the Premier League champions see off the Blues 2-0.

While the limelight was stolen in the midfield by debutant Thiago Alcantara, it was a big day for the 34-year-old as he made his 150th appearance for the Anfield side.

And he sent a message to fans while commenting on a social media post by the club on his latest feat.

Writing on his Twitter channel, Milner simply said “here’s to the next 150” as well as adding an emoji of an old man.

While a third suggested that the midfielder would also have a place at Anfield after his next 150 appearances.

“Yes Milly! What a legend! We want you to stay as long as possible and become a coach right after you hang up them experiences boots of yours,” they said.

“The team needs your experience and winning mentality.”

And a fourth added: “Keep up the great play, James.”

A fifth made a brilliant prediction, with: “2025: ‘Milner with a penalty and scores and secures the title for Liverpool.”

He wrote in the Daily Mail: "There is no doubt in my mind Thiago Alcantara is coming to Liverpool as a first XI player - I doubt very much he's had any conversations with Jurgen Klopp about sitting on the bench this season."
