Liverpool’s performance against Chelsea must be the benchmark for the rest of the season, Simon Mignolet explained after Tuesday’s 1-1 draw.
An absorbing Premier League clash between the Reds and the leaders ended level at Anfield, with David Luiz and Georginio Wijnaldum on target in either half.
Chelsea could have snatched victory late on when Diego Costa won a penalty and stepped up to take it – but Mignolet reacted sharply to push away the spot-kick to his right.
And the goalkeeper felt the final result was the minimum Liverpool deserved on the night, calling for more of the same throughout what is left of the campaign.
