Mingolet looks for positives in Man City defeat

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has told the club’s official website that there are positives to be taken from the Reds’ 3-1 reverse against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Blues ran out comfortable winners on their home patch with Sergio Agüero adding to Stevan Jovetic’s brace to give the reigning champions a three goal advantage before a late Pablo Zabaleta own goal reduced their lead without threatening the outcome.


But Belgian international Mignolet insisted that there were enough positives even in defeat to encourage his team going into their next match. Mignolet was particularly encouraged by the Reds’ first half performance and acknowledged that Jovetic’s opening goal just minutes before the break was a decisive blow.


“For the first 40 minutes of the game we played really well and then City scored from the only real chance they had in the first half. It's always difficult when you go into the dressing room 1-0 down at half-time,” said the 26-year-old stopper.


“I think we have to take the positives out of the game and look back to the first 40 minutes and we need to go into the next game and try to make sure we get the three points against Tottenham.”


Liverpool have added a number of new defensive options over the summer including the highly-rated trio of Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo after protracted negotiations and speculation.


And Mignolet is certain that these new additions can only strengthen and improve the team, with a bit of hard work.


“Everybody is working really hard in training to make sure everybody is up to speed with things with what the gaffer wants,” said Mignolet. “We have got lots of new faces in the squad and that means a lot of new talent, and I think everybody has shown already what they can do for Liverpool.”

Despite the 3-1 lose against mc, lfc should not discourage. New player wil make lfc proud and they re all welcome to Anfield ground. Mario Balatoli will feel the gap of the departur of Urug striker L.Suarez.
