Mignolet: It Was Important

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet admitted it was important to bounce back with a win against Hull City on New Year’s Day, especially after suffering defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea over the Christmas period.

Liverpool registered a 2-0 win over Hull to see them in fourth place on theleague table after New Year’s Day, and now Mignolet says they are looking to kick-on.

“We are back in fourth position now and we have to keep going,” said Mignolet.

“That's exactly what we wanted after the performances in the Christmas period.

“It was very important to get back to winning ways.

“If you play at home you have to show everyone (who visits) they have to win the three points like we have done numerous times before and this game was very important to start 2014 the way we started the season.

“You can look forward again and make sure we keep building on what we've done.

“Every home game against sides like Hull is a very difficult game until we score the opener and even after that we have to score the second and third goals to finish off the games.

“It is very difficult to make sure we keep patient, pass the ball around and don't give too many opportunities to the opposition, especially from set-pieces. We have to make sure we keep professional.”

Mignolet also touched on his personal performance between the sticks and feels he has had a good season thus far since joining from Sunderland, but is keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

“There is a difference between being hard on yourself and making sure you learn out of the things you have done before,” added Mignolet.

“You have to make sure you look forward to the next game and step on to the pitch with the right mindset and so far that has not been an issue for me.

“The way I look at it is I don't get carried away with good performances and neither do I when things get a bit tougher.”
