Roy Keane says Phil Foden sent Milner ‘home in an ambulance’ after Man City draw

Roy Keane joked that Phil Foden sent Liverpool player James Milner ‘home in an ambulance’ during his impressive display for Manchester City in the draw at Anfield.

With number one right back Trent Alexander-Arnold injured, 35-year-old Milner filled in at the full back position for the Reds against Man City on Sunday.

Milner is one of the most experienced players in the Premier League but he struggled against City stars Foden and Jack Grealish.

He was given a yellow card for chopping down Foden in the first half of the game and it was a surprise not to see Milner sent off when he brought Bernardo Silva down after the break.

Pep Guardiola was furious that Milner was not given his marching orders, although his anger decreased as the Premier League champions twice came from behind to secure a point against Liverpool.

Manchester United legend Keane hailed Foden after the draw and said Milner would be glad to see the back of the Manchester City player.

‘Phil Foden was outstanding and he’s going to a new level,’ Keane told Sky Sports. ‘He’s getting even more confident, he’s working with one of the best managers in the world.

‘Everything about him today was quality, his first touch, his decision-making, the goal. That’s what you want. ‘I think Milner will be glad to see the back of him, I think he went home in an ambulance tonight! It was pure quality from Foden.’

Foden, meanwhile, said: ‘It’s very difficult to come here with the fans. It’s one of the most difficult grounds to come to and we dealt with it really well today.

‘It had it all. It was end-to-end at times. I twa such a brilliant game and we stuck in there to the end. ‘We’re happy to get the draw and on another day we could have took the three points.

‘It was disappointing not to go in at half time ahead but we kept the momentum when we came out in the second half and we dug in there.’
