Simon Mignolet: We’ve got to look forward and not for excuses


Simon Mignolet

2nd March 2017

Liverpool are making no excuses for their form in 2017 so far, but must put all frustrations behind them and focus on Saturday’s Anfield encounter with Arsenal in order to deliver a response, according to Simon Mignolet.

The Reds’ 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Monday evening means they’ve won just two of 12 fixtures in all competitions so far this calendar year.

Nevertheless, while acknowledging such a record is a source of huge disappointment, Mignolet insists no mitigation will be sought as the squad instead look firmly towards the visit of the Gunners and the opportunity to bounce back to winning ways.

The goalkeeper told Liverpoolfc.com: “There will be a few things we could say; we could say we had a few injuries, we’ve had a lot of games, Sadio went to the Africa Cup of Nations… but in the end that’d all be about excuses and we don’t want to look for them. It’s about looking forward.

“We know January wasn’t really the best of months, but we don’t want to look back – we have an opportunity again against Arsenal and that’s where we have to look forward to. We showed at the Emirates at the beginning of the season that we can get a result, play really good football and create chances against Arsenal. That’s what we have to look to do again. It’s the next game that counts and that’s why we’re looking forward.
