Boy did I never think I'd be writing that....ever. Not even as a joke.
But it's true. Emile Heskey has almost looked like a completely different player the last few weeks. His confidence is back, he's not going missing in games nearly as much and he's actually driving forward towards the opponents goal.
Anyway, speaking on the Official Site Heskey who bagged himself another goal last night, paid tribute to our new look midfield and our renewed attacking intent.
Specifically praising Milner and pointing out that he's surprising a number of people, Hesk said:
'Millie has gone in there and done really well. Stewart and Ash can swap all the time too so that gives us something different and Stiliyan has been terrific as usual.
'Millie scored a great goal. He has got the ability to do that. I didn't really expect him to shoot from there but he has that ability and he has a great shot on him.'
As well as being pleased with finding the net again himself, Heskey was also impressed with the work ethic and passion of the team for being able to come away with another good victory despite the hype following the Man U match.
'The boys were all feeling a bit tired but we came here, stayed strong and scored some goals.
'It's nice to be playing first and foremost and if I can chip in with a few goals myself then great.'
