Mignolet's perfect suggestion on how Liverpool should deal with United defeat

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has suggested how the side needs to respond after the defeat yesterday.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has given a very bullish message on the club’s website over how the side needs to react to defeat against Manchester United after the international break.

The Belgian saved a penalty but Brendan Rodgers’ side still fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss against their arch rivals.

“There's still a lot to play for and when we come back from international duty - let's use this game as a catalyst again when we come back,” said the shot stopper.

“With all the games still to play until the end of the season, we can still do really well. We'll build on the game and hopefully we can come back and get a run going again.”

It was a disappointing performance from the Reds, which is a shame because they had started to play very well, building some impressive momentum under Brendan Rodgers.

The frustrations and the performance were defined by the red card shown to Steven Gerrard when he hadn’t even been on the pitch for a minute.

Liverpool have a number of players away on international duty during the break, but for Rodgers and the coaches at the club, the work won’t stop.

They’ll be analysing things intensely and looking for areas where the Reds can cash in and improve over the rest of the season, as the fight for Champions League football intensifies.

Liverpool are five points away from United with eight games left but as so many fans will remind United supporters, they did blow an eight point lead with six games to go when Manchester City won their first Premier League title.
