Simon Mignolet: Looking for Liverpool to bounce back against Fulham

The Reds left Emirates Stadium on Saturday on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline and five points adrift of the table-topping Gunners.

A setback in north London was only Liverpool's second of a productive season, with Brendan Rodgers having positioned the club back among the top flight front-runners.

It is a position they intend on maintaining, with Mignolet calling on those in the Anfield camp to get back to business on Saturday when Fulham pay a visit to Merseyside.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Everybody wanted to do well. We were motivated and confident going into the game because it was a good opportunity for us to go top of the table.

"Unfortunately, we came across a good Arsenal side. They put us under pressure and scored an early goal. Afterwards, you're chasing the game a bit.

"At half-time we changed things and managed to create some chances, but we couldn't score a goal. Then Aaron Ramsey killed the game off, really.

"Arsenal are doing really well at the moment and they are a good side.

"That doesn't mean we're not disappointed, but the most important thing is that we can't drop our heads after this performance.

"We must look forward and make sure we put things right against Fulham.

"It's always important to respond after a defeat. I'm sure everybody will be prepared to work hard from Monday onwards for the preparation against Fulham."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
