Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Simon Mignolet's performance against Leicester

Mignolet

Liverpool fans took to Twitter on Tuesday night to react to Simon Mignolet's performance in the 3-1 win at Leicester City.

Liverpool came from behind to win 3-1 at 10-man Leicester City in Tuesday night’s Premier League clash, with under-fire goalkeeper Simon Mignolet putting in another shaky performance.

Mignolet was almost left red faced in the 19th-minute when he inexplicably cleared straight to Esteban Cambiasso, only for the Argentine midfielder to shoot wide of an open goal from 25 yards out.

The Belgium international looked to have atoned for the mistake three minutes later when he saved sharply from Jamie Vardy, but Leonard Ulloa’s resulting shot found the back of the net via the post and the back of the error-prone keeper’s head.

The visitors levelled soon after, however, when Adam Lallana netted after Rickie Lambert's knock down, before Steven Gerrard marked his return to the line-up nine minutes after the break when he slotted in from a poor Wes Morgan clearance.

Morgan was then sent off in the 63rd-minute after wresting Lambert to the floor when through on goal, before Jordan Henderson sealed a deserved Reds win seven minutes from the end.

Nevertheless, despite the win, it’s no surprise that fans were eager to voice their displeasure with Mignolet’s performance at the final whistle, having seen him make a similarly poor error in last week’s 2-2 Champions League draw at Ludogorets, with few left defending him on social media at this stage.
