Milner had eight crosses and four key passes en route to an assist in a 1-1 draw to Everton on Sunday.

Milner did what he does best, as he sent in cross after cross. A corner was nicely headed in by Danny Ings and it gave Milner his second assist of the year, Milner got lost in the shuffle at Manchester City over recent seasons, but it appears he's found a nice everyday role with the Reds. Look for him to approach double-digit assists this season, as he should be a candidate for 100-plus crosses this year.

Liverpool announced the signing of Milner to the club Thursday, pending a medical exam.

The former Manchester City midfielder will complete the transfer on the first of July if everything goes well with his medical exam. He's coming off a solid season with eight goals and eight assists in all competitions (five and seven, respectively, in Premier League play), and while Manchester City were interested in bringing him back, the potential playing time offered by LFC was too good to pass up. He joins a somewhat crowded attacking midfield that includes the likes of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Jordon Ibe, but the 29-year-old Milner figures to get consistent playing time regardless.

Milner (knee) came on in the 56th minute of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Milner has dealt with knee soreness for much of 2015 and was even held out of last weekend's match against West Ham. Given that City continue to fight for a Champions League spot, he may have to continue fighting through the ailment, especially with Yaya Toure now battling a hamstring issue.
