James Milner scored the winner in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Swansea on Saturday – and fans took to Twitter to praise the full-back for his goal.
Milner, 30, converted from the spot with just seven minutes of normal time remaining in the clash to seal a fifth win in a row for the Reds.
The result means Liverpool move up to second spot in the Premier League before the remainder of Saturday’s games kick-off.
Supporters on social media were thrilled with the former England international’s composure to score the goal.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Jurgen Klopp has turned James Milner into the best left-back in the world. Fact.

If James Milner dabbed he'd be worth £90 million.

The versatile Merseyside ace has been a key player in the Jurgen Klopp revolution over the last 12 months.
Milner has played as a deep lying midfielder, left-winger and now a left-back since his free transfer to Anfield in 2015.
The former Manchester City star replaced Alberto Moreno at left-back earlier in the campaign and has now scored four goals and provided two assists in seven games for Liverpool this term.
