James Milner Adrian obstruction?- Emre Can goal v West Ham 2018

Was Liverpool’s James Milner guilty of obstructing West Ham goalkeeper Adrian during the Reds’ first goal in their 4-1 win at Anfield?

West Ham had survived for nearly half an hour before Emre Can got the better of debutant Patrice Evra at a corner and headed home. But should this goal, Can’s sixth & Liverpool’s 100th of the season across all competitions, been allowed to stand? Was Milner obstructing Adrian? Clever play because the medio doesn’t move that much. Would it have been called if Adrian had made more of an effort to get past him? Perhaps yes. The other question is possibly about Milner being offside when Can headed it in, but he seems okay on that point from the pic and video below
