Milner is renowned for his versatility; across his career, Milner has played as a central midfielder, a defensive midfielder and as an attacking midfielder, as well as on the wing, and as a full-back, with Milner's preferred position being as a central midfielder. During his time at Leeds United, Milner predominantly played as a winger, before moving into central midfield during his time at Aston Villa.
