Milner warns Liverpool must improve for 2020-21

Liverpool must stay hungry if they are to compete with Manchester City next season.

After 31 games, Klopp’s men sit tightly at the top spot with 23 points clear of second spot rivals Manchester City.

Liverpool added their 19th Premier League title on Thursday after a 30-year wait and Milner wants the club to be hungry for the title if they are hoping to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United next season.

“You see how difficult it is for any team to defend the title,” Milner, 34, told The Times. “City managed it last season.. but they tried twice before and failed.

“The two times I was there in seasons after winning titles we were never at the races… That’s something I’ve learnt from.

“This Liverpool team has shown we can deal with disappointment. Can we now show that we can deal with success? Being as good next year as we’ve been this year won’t be enough, City will raise their game and so will other clubs.”

Milner said his side have the strength of character to cope with the pressure of being champions.

“We are now there to be shot at and we have to be big enough to deal with that. It’s not a team that would ever go into autopilot. I don’t think we have those sort of characters and attitude,” he added.
