Simon Mignolet delivers Twitter verdict after Liverpool draw v Manchester City
By Danny Wright
Simon Mignolet has taken to Twitter to praise what was an exciting game between Liverpool and Manchester City.
After 90 minutes jam-packed with action and controversy, the two sides settled on a 1-1 draw after James Milner and Sergio Aguero both scored for their respective sides.
The Liverpool shot-stopper had a busy start to the game as he was forced to deal with a number of venomous driven efforts at his goal.
However his chances of bagging his seventh clean sheet of the season were dashed when Aguero broke through the Reds defence to cancel out Milner’s converted spot-kick.
Aguero and Adam Lallana went on to miss big chances and both sides had penalty appeals waved away by referee Michael Oliver.
