Belgian goalie Simon Mignolet is increasingly looking like a brilliant summer signing from Liverpool.
Whilst Luis Suarez is rightly gaining all the plaudits for some stunning goal scoring displays, Mignolet continues to make big saves at crucial moments which can be forgotten about at full time.
This was the case on Saturday as Mignolet was at full stretch to keep out a Modibo Maiga header with the score goalless between Liverpool and West Ham.
It would take Liverpool a further 21 minutes to break the deadlock and Mignolet’s save was crucial the way the match panned out.

What a signing Mignolet has been for us. I'd guess he has probably won us as many points as Luis this season.

Mignolet's performances really deserve a clean sheet. It's a huge shame he doesn't get them.

Mignolet is raw talent. Another year and we'll have one of the best goalkeepers in the league.
