Liverpool ace James Milner has been keeping himself busy amid the coronavirus lockdown as he named his ‘isolation XI’ in a hilarious video posted to Twitter.

Milner and his Liverpool teammates have not played for two weeks after football was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while training has also been halted.

But Milner hasn’t been idle, and had fans in stitches this week with his latest update.

The video was captioned, “Had plenty of time to think about this… here’s my #isolationXI – let me know who would make your squad… #dadjokeseverywhere”.

Milner has often been mocked for his supposed less than exciting lifestyle, and he has played up to that in his recent posts.

James Milner picked his ‘Isolation XI’ to entertain fans in his latest video

In his latest footage, Milner then proceeds to show off a team he had assembled in his home from household objects and food – all of them puns based on real-life players.

The Liverpool midfielder had plumped for Joe ‘Heart’ in goal, pointing to a Love Heart sweet, while in defence he had a dog lead (Kyle Walker), a Terry’s chocolate orange (John Terry), a mat (Dominic Matteo), and a cherry-flavoured yoghurt (Leeds legend Trevor Cherry).

In midfield, Milner had set out a silver coin (David Silva), a cricket bat (David Batty), a lamp (‘Genie’ Wijnaldum) and a burger (Patrik Berger).

Up front, the former Manchester City and Leeds ace went with his Henry hoover (Thierry Henry) and a toy horse (Geoff Horsfield).

Not wanting to stop there, Milner had even named a subs’ bench.

His video went down a storm on Twitter, with fans posting replies such as: “keep these videos coming”, “I love you” and “you’ve absolutely smashed this”.

Earlier this month, Milner also had fans laughing when he and teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared isolation activities.

Oxlade-Chamberlain shared a video of himself and celebrity girlfriend Perrie Edwards dancing in sync to pass the time.

Milner responded with a video of himself rationing out tea bags.

Milner told his teammate: “Hey Alex_OxChambo Barrels of laughs here in the Milner household as well – rationing the tea bags for the week #crazydays #somuchtogetonwith #notgotthemovestocompete”.

Liverpool are not scheduled to play until May 2, with the Premier League suspended until April 30 at the earliest.
