Statistic: Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet not conceded goal in 390 minutes

Mignolet

The Belgian goalkeeper was dropped earlier in the season but has been a safe pair of hands recently.

Simon Mignolet has suffered contrasting fortunes this season; firstly dropped after a number of questionable performances, the Belgian has been restored to the Liverpool team of late.

However, since returning to the Anfield outfit’s starting XI the former Sunderland stopper has provided a safe pair of hands and has excelled between the sticks for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Following Saturday’s shut-out against Everton, Mignolet has now not conceded a goal in 390 minutes of action, which has played a considerable role in the Reds’ improved form of late.

With Liverpool set to host fellow top-four hopefuls Tottenham tonight at Anfield and Harry Kane in red-hot form, Mignolet’s performance looks set to have a major bearing on the home side’s chances of success.

The Reds have been linked with a number of other custodians in the transfer window of late, with Australian stopper Mathew Ryan said to be a target for the Merseyside club.

However, with the Belgian’s form improving and Mignolet seemingly restoring some of the confidence that he possessed last season, Liverpool’s top-four hopes are severely boosted as a result.
