Liverpool midfielder James Milner gets Harry Potter treatment

After suffering a nasty cut in Liverpool's final preseason friendly, James Milner was forced to begin the Premier League campaign against West Ham last weekend with a thick bandage around his head.

The Reds midfielder has since had his stitches removed, leaving him with a large scar on his forehead that is vaguely reminiscent of a certain boy wizard.

Of course, it wasn't long before the photoshopped Harry Potter punchlines came rolling in from Milner's followers on social media.

Fine efforts, but we can't help thinking a little sympathy would probably be nice too.

With his bandage removed and his broomstick presumably left in the dressing room, Milner is likely to start for Liverpool when they travel to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park next Monday evening.
