The former England international stepped up at Anfield on Sunday boasting 10 previous successes for the Reds.
He was, however, to be denied by a sprawling stop from Forster.
While failing to convert for the first time for Liverpool, Milner’s miss from the spot also saw an eight-year run come to a close.
In a game of few opportunities on Merseyside, Milner’s inability to convert from 12 yards compounded the misery of Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The Reds remain locked in a battle for a top-four finish and know that they can ill-afford to pass up such opportunities.
Milner has, however, shown himself to be a key man over the course of the campaign and a reliable figure both at the back and over dead-balls.
He has scored 19 penalties over the course of his club career and two for England’s U21 side.
