James Milner’s head injury after Southampton
For a large part of Liverpool’s away match at Southampton on Saturday, James Milner moved around the pitch with a huge bandage around his head.
That’s after Milner suffered a head injury when battling for a header with James Ward-Prowse.
The good news for Milner is that he avoided any concussion, and he was able to play on.
On Sunday, however, the Liverpool midfielder revealed the extent of his injury on Instagram.
Making light of the situation, Milner wrote:
Doc had me in stitches yesterday… twice!
One hashtag stood out: #sorehead.
