“I am enjoying it very much, that is why I came here,” Milner told the Liverpool website.

“You want to be among good, experienced players and a blend of English talent and foreign players. Everything is there. “You look down the squad list and on the bench and it is a strong balance. You need a good squad to do anything and we will definitely have that.”

Milner added: “I think it is an exciting time to be at the club.

“There have obviously been a lot of changes on and off the field in the summer and I think it will take time to get to our best.

“But to start the season like we have is pleasing. We don’t want to put any targets on it, but the longer we get into this season and the more we play together, you will see us improve more and more."

Liverpool host West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday.

The match kicks off at 16:00.
