Simon Mignolet has eyes for nobody but Liverpool and so may it continue.
The Reds goalkeeper has set his sights on a strong second half of the season and is confident his side can still enjoy a successful campaign. Liverpool’s title rivals are in the back of Mignolet’s mind as he and those around him at the club continue to focus on their team alone.
All eyes will be on Chelsea’s clash with Tottenham tonight as the rest of the title contenders wait for the Premier League leaders to drop points.
Mignolet told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s way too early to look at other teams.”
“We just have to look at ourselves and keep doing the things we are doing well and learn from the things we are doing better.”
“There are certain things today [at Sunderland] we can learn from and if we can do that then we know we are a good team with so much quality, and we can make it a really good season this year.”
The mentality hasn’t changed. Jurgen Klopp and his players are only focusing on themselves and have no reason to move away from this approach given how things are going this season.
Monday’s draw against Sunderland was a frustrating way to follow up Saturday’s impressive win against Manchester City but it was yet another valuable lesson in what we must do to move forward.
There is still a long way to go in this title race.
