Anyone still suggesting Liverpool need a new goalkeeper this summer has not been paying attention

Goalkeeping for Liverpool, or indeed any top club, is the art of doing very little exceptionally well.  It’s a concept with which numerous Anfield No 1s have struggled over the last three decades, but in their pursuit of Champions League football a seasonal problem has gradually eroded.  That’s why we need to talk about Simon Mignolet.

Goalkeeping for Liverpool, or indeed any top club, is the art of doing very little exceptionally well.

It’s a concept with which numerous Anfield No 1s have struggled over the last three decades, but in their pursuit of Champions League football a seasonal problem has gradually eroded.

That’s why we need to talk about Simon Mignolet.

The Belgian has been very, very good this year and for the last four weeks he has elevated his game. Should Jurgen Klopp’s side collect the points they need to secure a top-four spot, a campaign which started with the forward line swatting aside opponents will have ended with The Kop applauding Mignolet’s calm assurance.

Mignolet did not take the man-of-the-match award against Watford on Monday night, but the sight of him routinely catching crosses and resisting the physical advances of strikers who would have bullied him a few years ago was as eye-catching as Emre Can’s scissor-kick.

It was Mignolet’s contribution that earned Liverpool three points at Stoke recently. He was similarly impressive at West Bromwich Albion. He did not have much to do, but he was there as and when required.

Perhaps it is maturity. Maybe it was the recognition in mid-season, when he was dropped and then restored for Loris Karius, that it was closing time in that last-chance saloon. Had he not won his place back, reluctantly, but inevitably, Mignolet would have been considering his future this summer.

Maybe the 29 year-old just really hates those Joe Hart adverts and wants to spit venom at whoever keeps erroneously linking him with Anfield.

Wherever this more trustworthy, less fragile goalkeeper has come from, anyone still suggesting Liverpool need a new No 1 this summer has not been paying attention. 

It may have taken four years – and only those judging to flawless standards will be intolerant of occasional mistakes in future – but Mignolet has been more consistent for a while.
