Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Mignolet display v Man United

By Will Butcher

Liverpool fans were delighted with Simon Mignolet on Twitter after the Belgian performed heroics during the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The 28-year-old starred between the sticks with a number of wonderful saves that denied the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahmovic.

Although Mignolet was displaced earlier in the season after a number of questionable performances in favour of Loris Karius, Mignolet has now won his place back.

The Belgium international has taken his second chance with aplomb after keeping three clean sheets in six games and preventing Jose Mourinho’s from getting on the scoresheet until the 84th minute.

Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to Mignolet’s performance, with some Reds supporters even calling for manager Jurgen Klopp to offer the former Sunderland stopper a new contract.
