Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet not getting carried away with Premier League form

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has insisted he will remain grounded after experiencing highs and lows during his first season at Anfield, Sky Sports has reported.

Mignolet moved to Merseyside from Sunderland in summer 2013, replacing Pepe Reina as Brendan Rodgers’ first choice stopper with Reina moving on loan to Napoli. Liverpool have for much of Mignolet’s time at the club been at the top end of the table - leading the way on Christmas Day - but defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea saw the Reds stutter and tumble to fifth.

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

Liverpool returned to form on New Year’s Day with a home victory over Hull City, goals from Daniel Agger and Luis Suarez clinching the points, with Mignolet believing it was important Liverpool got three points on the board after their late December disappointments. “We are back in fourth position now and we have to keep going,” he added.

That's exactly what we wanted after the performances in the Christmas period. It was very important to get back to winning ways,” the Belgium international continued. “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.

Liverpool are currently six points short of league leaders Arsenal, with a point’s cushion on Merseyside rivals Everton, who are fifth. Rodgers’ side next meet Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup, the same League One opposition who eliminated them from the competition a year ago.
