How did Liverpool bounce back from Capital One Cup final heartache? By getting back on the horse of course.

The Reds have picked up six points against Manchester City and Crystal Palace and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet said: “The gaffer told us that when you fall off a horse, you have to jump up and climb back on it again.

“We’ve done that after what happened in the final. It still hurts but we have got two big wins.

“Everything can change very quickly in the Premier League and we need to keep going.

“Now it’s the Europa League and that’s a competition we want to do really well in. You can see we’re playing with confidence. We want to build on this.”

The Belgian was very impressed with Klopp’s tactical switch when Liverpool lost James Milner to two stupid yellow cards.

“Everyone is pleased with how we reacted to going a man down,” said Mignolet.

“Tactically, maybe it actually helped us a bit because we played with three at the back and we stopped the counter-attacks from Palace by doing that.

“They sat back and let us back in the game. We played so well with 10 men. We defended really well and created chances.”
