Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has kept four clean sheets so far this campaign.

With none of Liverpool’s outfield stars dominating proceedings this season; the Reds’ best Premier League player is arguably their man between the sticks. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who arrived at Anfield from English top-flight rivals Sunderland back in June 2013 for a reported £9m, has kept four clean sheets in the club’s opening ten league games in what has already proven to be a turbulent start to the club’s 2014-15 campaign. Brendan Rodgers’ sacking at Anfield earlier this month demonstrates the high expectation still surrounding Liverpool to compete in the Premier League, with former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp the next man in at the Kop in a bid to “bring back the good times”. To put Mignolet’s achievements into perspective; only Joe Hart (Manchester City), Boaz Myhill (West Brom) and Petr Cech (Arsenal) have kept more clean sheets this term than the Belgium international, helping steer Liverpool’s boat steady as they currently hover in mid-table (Ninth). Although Klopp will certainly work upon the Reds’ goalscoring exploits; he’ll be pleased to have a safe pair of hands at the very back of the pack, with his stupendous string of saves in Liverpool’s goalless, but entertaining, draw at Arsenal back in August emphasising his importance and his ability to those in Red who have doubted his capability since arriving at Anfield.
