Watford v Liverpool - Premier League
Liverpool has recently scored its 100th goal of the season

Liverpool has improved a lot since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp as the manager. Known for its attack, Liverpool's front three have been even more sensational this season. Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane have proved themselves as scoring machines with a combined tally of 66 goals this season.

While these three are getting all the limelight, there are other players whose contribution cannot be overlooked. They have acted as the backbone of the club's success this season. Right on this note, let us look at 5 such players who got overshadowed by Liverpool's front three.

#5 James Milner

Liverpool v Huddersfield Town - Premier League
James Milner is the leading assist provider in this year's Champions League for Liverpool

James Milner might not be the first name on Liverpool's team sheet, but the former Manchester City man never fails to deliver whenever he gets his chance on the field.

Signed on a free transfer in 2015, James Milner played a vital part in Liverpool's run to the Europa League final during Jurgen Klopp's first season at Anfield before playing an important role as a makeshift left-back in the 2016-2017 season.

Jurgen Klopp mostly used him as a central midfielder this season, and the former England International didn't disappoint him this time as well. James Milner is the leading assist provider in this season's Champions League and has two assists recorded to his name in the Premier League as well.

James Milner is in the second last year of his contract with Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp will look forward to tying him down for some more years if he continues to perform at the same level.
