Milner hoping to be fit for City clash.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner is hoping to be fit for Reds' next game against Manchester City on the 21st of November.

Milner, who missed Liverpool's last game against Crystal Palace through a hamstring injury, said it shouldn't be too long before he returns to action.

“It’s always disappointing to miss any games - and obviously missing last weekend and the England games is disappointing," the former City player said, reports

“It shouldn’t be too long and hopefully I’ll be back for the next game, but we’ll have to wait and see.

“You never like to put a timeframe on it because it’s a hamstring and they’re always difficult and a bit unpredictable, but hopefully I’ll be alright.

“It’s disappointing, but these things happen and hopefully I’ll be back soon.”

Milner also spoke on the Three Lion of England's friendlies against Spain and France.

“They’re two big games and two difficult teams for us, but they’re the sort of opposition you need to learn to play against and beat if you want to be successful in the summer,” said Milner.

“They are two good fixtures for us and ones we can build experience from.

“We’ve had a good qualifying campaign. People said it was an easy group and perhaps on paper it was, but it’s never like that in football and we know that.

“To get the results we did, and be as ruthless as we were, was pleasing.

“Now we have a different test and hopefully we can take the momentum we’ve had into the qualifiers into those games.”
