Liverpool Fans Can't Quite Wrap Their Head Around The Curious Case Of Simon Mignolet

Liverpool Fans Can't Quite Wrap Their Head Around The Curious Case Of Simon Mignolet

Liverpool and their fans can breathe a sigh of relief tonight after they defeated Leicester City 3-2 at the King Power stadium after a run of four games without a win.

Liverpool started the game brightly and were rewarded after 15 minutes when Coutinho provided a beautiful cross on the left wing for Mohamed Salah to head home from a tight angle. Things got better for Liverpool eight minutes later when Coutinho reminded everyone what he was capable of as he curled home a stunning free kick from 30 yards that put the Reds in the driving seat.

However, just before half time Shinji Okazaki scored from a corner thanks to a mistake from Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Jordan Henderson put Liverpool 3-1 up after 68 minutes but the two goal lead barely even lasted a minute when Jamie Vardy was first to react to an extremely poor parry from Mignolet and the English striker headed home from close range to make it 3-2.

As if the Belgian goalkeeper's relationship with Liverpool fans couldn't get any worse, he clattered into Vardy in the box five minutes later, giving away a penalty. Luckily for Liverpool they appear to have a penalty saving specialist, as he saved Vardy's attempt from the spot.
