Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet: I wouldn’t swap wins for clean sheets
Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet insists he wouldn't swap his side's recent wins for clean sheets
Simon Mignolet insists he would be happy to forget about keeping clean sheets if Liverpool continue securing emphatic wins until the end of the season.
The Reds have conceded 18 goals this term, as many as struggling Aston Villa, whilst Mignolet has kept one clean sheet since a 1-0 victory over Manchester United in September.
If we keep winning 4-1 until the end of the season I’ll be a happy chappy
However, second-placed Liverpool are on track to secure a top-four spot thanks to a series of impressive wins, and Mignolet is thrilled to see the Reds in good form.
“You want to keep clean sheets – that is what I am there for – but you are just one part of the team,” Mignolet said.
“It’s what you look forward to before a game starts but if we keep winning 4-1 until the end of the season I’ll be a happy chappy.
“The most important thing is to try to win the game.”
Mignolet, who joined the Reds in an £9m deal from Sunderland in the summer, insisted that he hasn’t been affected by the regular changes in defence over the past month.
“All the players who are there are professional enough to deal with that,” Mignolet added.
“All the defenders here are very organised, motivated and concentrated.
“We need to do a job. It doesn’t matter as a keeper who is in front of me.
“I work day in, day out with the lads. I know what they can do and it doesn’t affect me whether the defenders change.”
