Liverpool star Simon Mignolet has admitted that his mistake when coming out for the ball cost his team all three points in the draw with Norwich City, according to reports from the Express.
The 27-year-old failed to punch clear from a Norwich corner, eventually pushing the ball into the path of Russell Martin, who was able to get the equalizer for his side to finish the game at 1-1.
Danny Ings replaced Christian Benteke for the second half and gave his side the lead three minutes from the restart, but Martin got the game back on level terms shortly after the hour mark.
Mignolet revealed his disappointment following his mistake given that the squad spent last week practising their set-piece defending as the goalkeeper looks to learn from the error.
“It’s always disappointing to concede from a set-piece, especially as we had been working hard on defending them this week,” he said.
“The next time a ball comes in like that I’ll still come for it and try to get something on it.
“Unfortunately, that goal has cost us. We’ll have to learn lessons from that.”
Manager Brendan Rodgers is now under heavy pressure from the fans after picking up only a point and have now failed to win their last five fixtures in all competitions.
