Simon Mignolet: Goalkeeper beaten by Vardy's wonder goal

Simon Mignolet bemoaned Liverpool’s lack of end product at Leicester but believes there were positives to be taken from the performance.

Despite largely dominating possession, the Reds were beaten 2-0 at the King Power Stadium, after Jamie Vardy bagged a brace – the first of which a wonder strike that left Mignolet stranded.

Liverpool are now eight in the table, having won only once in the Premier League since the turn of the year.

“Obviously, it’s difficult when you concede [the first goal],” he told the club’s official website. “I think we didn’t start the game well, we let Leicester come into the game and didn’t defend aggressively enough.

“You can always score a goal on the counter so we were in the game still at half-time, which was positive. You have to be there [as a goalkeeper] to help the team out and so I was happy at 0-0 at half-time but second half he scored a great goal.

“Unfortunately we didn’t manage to create the chances we wanted to or score a goal. The end product hasn’t been there.

“We didn’t create enough chances to score a goal and when you play this Leicester side away from home you have to make chances to put them under pressure. We didn’t manage to do that but I think everybody tried their best.”
