Liverpool can turn things around against Manchester United – Simon Mignolet



Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has disclosed that their match against Manchester United is an opportunity for them to turn things around after an unimpressive campaign in the premier league so far this season.

The Reds have been in total shambles since their 4 – 0 win against Arsenal with an unimpressive run of a win in 7 matches; losing 5 – 0 against Manchester City, a 2 – 2 draw against Sevilla in their opening Champions League match, another 1 – 1 draw against Burney, then a 2 – 0 lost against Leicester City which saw them crashing out of the Carabao Cup after which they registered a 3 – 2 win against Leicester in the league, they continued their Champions League group campaign with yet another 1 – 1 draw against Spartak Moscow and finally a 1 – 1 draw against Newcastle in their last EPL match before the International break.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper is confident that the Liverpool team can bounce back immediately club action resumes after the international break when they’ll be hosting Manchester United at Anfield. The match against Manchester United is seen as an opportunity to prove themselves as title contenders because the Red Devils are currently on fire, ravaging each team that comes their way.

“If you come away with a 1-1 result, that’s obviously a disappointing feeling. You start to look at what you could have done better,” Mignolet told the club’s official website.

“I think we played well, we deserved to get the victory; we created chances. But it is how it is at this moment in time, we have to take it.

“It’s disappointing and frustrating but we have to keep looking forward, keep our heads up and make sure when we come back after the international break we go again against Manchester United, which is a big game and something to turn things right for us.”

The Belgium international goalkeeper joined Liverpool in 2013 from Sunderland for the fee of £9 million, he is Liverpool’s first choice goalkeeper and is hopeful that his team can finally challenge for the title this season.
