Simon Mignolet is hoping Liverpool will bounce back against Manchester United in two weeks’ time.
We drew yesterday with Newcastle at St. James’ Park, with our hosts scoring from their only real effort on goal.
Jonjo Shelvey played Joselu through and the Spaniard got a lucky ricochet to bag an undeserved equaliser…
We’ve now won one game in six in what’s been a miserable run of form following the last international break.
Annoyingly, we’ve just entered another one.
“If you come away with a 1-1 result, that’s obviously a disappointing feeling. You start to look at what you could have done better,” he told the Independent. “We played well, we deserved to get the victory, we created chances. But it is how it is at this moment in time, we have to take it.
“It’s disappointing and frustrating, but we have to keep looking forward, keep our heads up and make sure when we come back after the international break we go again against Manchester United, which is a big game and something to turn things right for us.
“Everybody will be away in another environment and when they come back, we’ve got that one to look forward to. I’m sure everybody will be focused on their international duties now, but when they are back they have a big game to look forward to. We will be ready for it.”
Manchester United are in blistering form, but at Anfield, we can undeniably win if we take our chances.
Jose Mourinho will park the bus, as he always does at our ground, which could lead to a long afternoon of possession in an attempt to break down two banks of four.
Last term, we drew 0-0 in the same fixture, with David de Gea keeping out a stupendous Coutinho effort late on to steal a point.
