Simon Mignolet: It was a battle – and now we have to learn from it


Simon Mignolet

13th March 2017

Simon Mignolet highlighted Liverpool’s battling qualities as they ground out a 2-1 victory over Burnley at Anfield on Sunday and admitted: ‘Now we have to learn from this.’

The Reds recovered from the early setback of Ashley Barnes’ goal to record a win courtesy of strikes from Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can.

However, it was a performance that required resolve and patience from the home side in order to overcome a dogged display from the Clarets.

Mignolet said: “It was a day when it was all about the result rather than the performance.

“We knew beforehand what everyone was saying about how we didn’t manage to get results against the ‘lower’ teams who play a different style of football compared to the top teams.

“Although we went behind, we fought back by playing old school, English football. We fought for everything.

“The only thing that mattered was the three points. That was our objective and we achieved it with a lot of hard work and by winning a lot of battles out there.
