Liverpool midfielder has taken to Twitter to poke fun at the bizarre own goal he scored during his sides 4-2 loss against Roma in the Champions League semi-final last night - a result that saw the Reds progress to the final 7-6 on aggregate.

Milner - a recent convert to Twitter - managed to find the funny side of his own goal, which saw his teammate Dejan Lovren hammer the ball at his face and deflect into the back of the net. However, the former England international was all smiles at the final whistle, with his side booking their place in the final against Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid.

The thrilling two-leg encounter saw the Reds triumph in the first tie at Anfield - hammering five goals past the Serie A side but conceding two goals in the process. A gutsy performance in Rome ensured that Jürgen Klopp's side progressed to the final, with the 4-2 loss a poor reflection on a game which never really saw his side in danger of crashing out the cup.

Liverpool will feel more than confident heading into the final in Kiev, given the mesmerising football they've played in the competition this season. Becoming renowned as somewhat of a cup side, the Reds' ability to consistently score goals over two legs has proven pivotal in their progression, and Los Blancos will need to dig deep to prevent them finding the net in the final.


Meanwhile, Roma keeper Alisson has hinted at the possibility of a move to the Reds in the summer, claiming the speculation makes him "happy". Despite shipping seven goals against the Merseyside's Alisson is widely regarded as one of the top keepers in the world, and is currently keeping Manchester City ace Ederson out of the Brazil international team.
