James Milner worried about Manchester United’s recent upturn of form.
Liverpool are joint-top on the Premier League table with Manchester United and Milner admitted the title race remained wide open.
“I think it’s a positive but it seems to be at this moment in time that nobody wants to take it by the scruff of the neck,” Milner told Liverpool’s official website.
“We’ve dropped points, everyone seems to be dropping points.
“United have had a good run and they’re probably the only team who are putting a run together.
“It’s important that we need to kick on now and try to get a few three-pointers.”
“The amount of minutes some of the lads have played, it’s nice to see a few of the boys getting back – obviously Thiago getting on today and showing his quality,” he said.
“We’ll stick together, we’ll keep plugging away and we just need to get that final piece of the puzzle right.
“I thought it was a good performance (against Newcastle), we just needed that final bit to get the goals.
“If we keep playing like that, hopefully we can go on a run and put some more points on the board.”
