Simon Mignolet has denied that anyone inside the Liverpool dressing room has talking or thinking about the ultimate prize – the Premier League title.
“We don’t really look over our shoulders to what’s been or what’s coming. Yes we’re in a good mood and we can use the confidence we have to perform every week. But at the same time every game is just totally different and every 90 minutes has to be played. We can’t rest on our laurels and have to keep doing the things we’re doing right and still improve in the things we can do better,” he said (Echo)
“If we do that then obviously we’ve got a great team, we’ve got lots of talent in the squad and it can become a great year. But we don’t have to look that far down the line as of yet, it’s about the next game and that happens to be a big one against Manchester United.”
As we don’t need to remind you, we haven’t won the top flight since 1990. We’ve come second three times since, and arguably should have won at least a couple of titles in that time, but the trophy has eluded us.
Luckily, we have managed to win a decent amount of silverware over the last 26 years, but the wait for the biggest prize goes on.
This season there is once again some optimism that we might be able to pull it off. We are fourth in the league, two points behind leaders Man City, and have already played considerably more difficult games than lots of the sides around us.
After Monday, we’ll have played Spurs, Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester.
Can we win the league this season? Let us know.
