The Liverpool vice-captain – who has also represented Leeds United, Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Manchester City in the competition – reached the milestone in the 4-0 victory over Bournemouth.

“Milner became the 13th player to achieve the feat – the second-youngest behind Gareth Barry – and the first since Steven Gerrard did so in April 2015,” according to the club website.

“The Englishman received an accolade from the Premier League at Melwood on Wednesday to celebrate his landmark.”
