Simon Mignolet: Keeping his feet on the ground

Simon Mignolet: Keeping his feet on the ground

The Belgium international has had an impressive start to his career on Merseyside since his summer move from Sunderland but suffered the agony of Christmas defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea.

"There is a difference between being hard on yourself and making sure you learn out of the things you have done before," he said.

"You have to make sure you look forward to the next game and step on to the pitch with the right mindset and so far that has not been an issue for me.

"The way I look at it is I don't get carried away with good performances and neither do I when things get a bit tougher."

Mignolet had it relatively easy at Anfield on New Year's Day with Hull unable to register a shot on target in the 2-0 defeat.

"We are back in fourth position now and we have to keep going," Mignolet said. "That's exactly what we wanted after the performances in the Christmas period. It was very important to get back to winning ways.

"If you play at home you have to show everyone (who visits) they have to win the three points like we have done numerous times before and this game was very important to start 2014 the way we started the season.

"You can look forward again and make sure we keep building on what we've done.

"Every home game against sides like Hull is a very difficult game until we score the opener and even after that we have to score the second and third goals to finish off the games.

"It is very difficult to make sure we keep patient, pass the ball around and don't give too many opportunities to the opposition, especially from set-pieces. We have to make sure we keep professional."

"We can now look forward to the next game, which is a cup game on Sunday."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
