Liverpool are becoming a tougher prospect to face because of the ‘strength and unity’ in the squad this season, according to Simon Mignolet.
The Reds return to Premier League action at Leicester City on Monday night, more than a fortnight on from a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur which replenished the belief in securing a top-four spot this term.
With 13 games remaining, Jürgen Klopp’s side are well placed to achieve that objective but know a consistent run of performances is required between now and May.
And Mignolet, now in his fourth season with the club, draws confidence from the nature of the current group of players and what that means for opponents.
“We’ve got 25 players in the dressing room but in the end there are only 11 who can play, so there are always going to be a few guys disappointed each weekend,” said the Belgian.
“We are fighting for the same objective, though, and I think that is our strength this season: we perform as a team.
