Milner targets silverware this season

Midfielder says squad are determined

Liverpool midfielder James Milner insists that the club are fully focused on bringing home some silverware this season.

The Anfield outfit have struggled this season following the departure of Brendan Rodgers and the arrival of Jurgen Klopp as their new manager and are currently well off the pace for Champions League qualification for next season.

But, while Milner admits that not everything has gone to plan, the squad have not written off the current campaign and are still intent on bringing home a trophy this season.

Speaking ahead of the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Stoke at Anfield, Milner said:

"It's not about writing off this season, saying 'We've changed the manager, there's a lot of changes and let's go again next year'.

"If we can win at least one trophy while changing manager and improving and new players coming in during a year of transition then we'll be achieving something and that's the aim.

"I think there are improvements to be made and we know where we need to get to.

"We're in a position where we haven't played as well as we would have liked and there's a lot of improvements to be made so we can move on.

"It's always nice to go to Wembley but we've got this job to do first."
