'You'll never walk alone' - Milner implores Liverpool to 'fight back' from shock Burnley loss

 The Reds midfielder says "excuses won't help" after the Premier League champions fell further back in the title race following a 1-0 defeat at Anfield

Liverpool midfielder James Milner has called on his team-mates to "fight our way back" after the Premier League champions fell further from the title race this season following a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Burnley on Thursday evening.

The Reds lost their long unbeaten record at Anfield after spurning several chances, before Ashley Barnes tucked away a late penalty to leave Jurgen Klopp's side in fourth place, six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United with 34 out of 19 games played.

Milner was not involved in the Burnley defeat, but issued a rallying cry to his fellow players not to mope or complain, but to fight back to try and defend the English top-flight crown, having won the domestic title for the first time in 30 years last season.
