Simon Mignolet has racked up nine clean sheets in the Premier League this season, but it is two other goalkeepers that have received the plaudits this season.

The Liverpool shot stopper’s future had previously looked in doubt after he was dropped in December at the expense of Reds’s number two Brad Jones.

However, after the Australian picked up an injury away to Burnley, Mignolet seized the opportunity and has not looked back since.

The Belgium international has already kept five clean sheets in the Premier League since the turn of the year, with Tottenham the only side that have managed to beat the Belgian.

Thanks to his excellent run of form between the sticks, the 26-year-old now sits second behind Southampton’s Fraser Forster in the Premier League clean sheets table.

Mignolet has accumulated two more shut-outs than both Manchester United’s David de Gea and Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois, two keepers that much of the praise has been aimed at this season.

The Liverpool man is now beginning to leave both in the shade and in turn earning the recognition he finally deserves.
