James Milner scored a winner from penalty in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City as Sadio Mane opened the score in the 40th minute, while James Maddison equalized in the 80th minute.

After the game, Milner has spoken out on the penalty in the added time.

“Tough obviously, I was just trying to stay calm in that situation and concentrate on what I was going to do,” Milner told LiverpoolFC.

“There was a bit of a wait. I was just trying to concentrate on what was going to happen.

“The first thing was whether it was going to be given or not, that’s obviously a new experience because normally it’s a penalty or not. So that was different, but I was just trying to stay calm and concentrate on what I was going to do.

“We’re just delighted to get the win; it was always going to be tough, they’re a good team. We looked pretty tired in the second half but we found a way to win again. It shows the character of the squad.”
