Simon Mignolet: Will look into his game

Simon Mignolet says “I’ll look into my game” after his error lead to Norwich’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool were leading through Danny Ings’ 48th-minute opener – his first goal for the club – when the Belgium keeper came to claim a corner but he could only punch the ball as far as the penalty spot from where Russell Martin hooked home the equaliser.

Mignolet has been criticised for not commanding his area enough in his early Liverpool career but after being dropped last December he returned with a more positive attitude and has been much improved at commanding his box.

That is why he sees no reason to change despite one mistake.

“I came for the ball, it was a whipped-in cross, and I tried to get a fist to it,” said the goalkeeper.

“It’s one of those that comes out, they picked up the second ball and scored from it.

“It’s always disappointing to concede from a set-piece, especially as we’ve been working hard on defending them this week.

“We knew they are a threat from them. We have to learn lessons from that.

“Unfortunately, that goal has cost us. That’s how it goes.

“I’ll look into my game on Monday – see what was positive and what I could have done better. That’s what I always do.

“The next time a ball comes in like that I’ll still come for it and try to get something on it.”

Liverpool sit in 13th spot in the table – seven points behind leaders Man City – after winning just one of their three Anfield games.
