Tekkers! Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet performs a mad bicycle kick clearance v Aston VillaWell they do say that keepers have to be bonkers…

Undoubtedly the skill of the day on Saturday in the Premier League belonged to Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

The 24-year-old Belgian stopper, when faced with dealing with a dodgy backpass in the second half, decidied that the best course of action was to flick the ball up and execute an overhead clearance just two yards off his goalline.

Mignolet could have been punished for his flamboyance, but the keeper sprung quickly to his feel to turn Stephen Ireland’s shot over the bar.

Watch Simon Mignolet’s awesomely mental overhead kick below.
