Simon Mignolet has jokingly apologised to Daniel Agger’s wife after the Liverpool goalkeeper gave the centre-half a black eye during their 3-0 win at Old Trafford.

The Belgium international attempted to clear a United corner but was beaten to the ball by Nemanja Vidic and clattered his team-mate Agger, who was marking the Serbian.

The 29-year-old Dane, who was made Reds vice-captain last summer, took to his Twitter following the memorable victory in the north-west derby sporting a heavily bruised right eye.

Mignolet, who suffered a fractured eye socket and broken nose during his spell with former club Sunderland, responded on the social media site with an apology to Agger’s wife.

Liverpool moved to within four points of leaders Chelsea after Steven Gerrard scored either side of half-time and Luis Suarez scored his 25th goal of the season in the 84th minute at Old Trafford.
