Liverpool fans not keen on Mignolet playing at all this season

Simon Mignolet has never been a big favourite among the Liverpool fanbase, but his recent antics have lost him even more supporters.

The goalkeeper took issue with the club allowing Loris Karius to move on in the summer while he was kept at Anfield as back-up.

Alisson is now first choice at the Merseyside outfit after moving to the club from Roma in a big-money deal.

In order to cope with the demand that comes with a busy season, some top-level clubs rotate their goalkeepers.

For example, last season, then-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger played Petr Cech in the Premier League and then David Ospina in cup competitions, including the Champions League.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp will not be taking that same approach as he intends to use Alisson in the league and in Europe.

However, Mignolet is likely to be in between the sticks in the EFL Cup and FA Cup, particularly in the early rounds.

Some Liverpool fans, though, are not keen on the Belgian playing at all this season and others would prefer it if youngster Caoimhin Kelleher was given the nod.
