It was a frustrating match for James Milner as Liverpool drew 1-1 with his former side Newcastle United but the 35-year-old did break a Premier League record when he came off the bench in the 58th minute.
Milner's 159th appearance as a substitute moved him one ahead of the record that had been held by Peter Crouch, who was quick to congratulate the new leader on Twitter.
Long is one ahead of Jermain Defoe, who holds the record for the most goals off the bench, with 24.
