And after another winning performance that relied on the strength of the squad, that has seen 37 players feature throughout the season, there was plenty of admiration from Andy Robertson and Milner.
“The position we’re in, challenging on all fronts, it proves you need the whole squad and we’re blessed to have a great squad of players,” Milner, who has 13 starts this season, told BT Sport.
“A good mix of the younger guys coming in and pushing everybody and everybody is needed, it’s proved with every game.”
The sentiment was echoed by Robertson, who showed plenty of love for Gomez and Keita after their decisive displays at St James’ Park.
“I thought Joe Gomez was different class at right-back, like Milly said, we need everyone in the squad,” Robertson said.
“We’re blessed we’ve got everyone fit just now, maybe apart from Bobby, but a lot of us are fit and healthy and fighting for places in the starting XI.
"We just keep that mindset, every three days, recover, go again."
"The lads are putting in big performances."

“We’ll need that until the end of the season.”
Liverpool’s squad depth has been a significant factor in the success so far this season and the potential for what is still to come.
It’s been an area of weakness previously but the Reds have found the sweet spot and are rightly taking advantage of it.
“Coming here with five changes and building pretty much a new setup is really difficult,” Klopp later added.
“So the performance was absolutely outstanding, I loved it. We controlled the game in so many ways.
