Manchester United fans were in a humorous mood after a video of a goalkeeping blunder emerged from Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sporting CP.
Just four minutes into the game, Simon Mignolet made an almighty error as he inadvertently palmed a shot from Bruno Fernandes into his own net.

Mignolet hasn’t been shy of making one or two blunders during his six-year Liverpool career. The Belgian made a famous mistake versus Manchester City in the League Cup final back in 2015, letting the ball go under his body while defending his near post.
Fernandes has been linked with a move to Manchester United in this summer’s transfer window, with the Red Devils reportedly having a bid rejected for the 24-year-old.
However, Sky Sports are now reporting that a move for Fernandes to Old Trafford is unlikely to happen.
After the mistake, the Old Trafford faithful took the opportunity to poke fun at Mignolet following the error.
Here is a selection of tweets following the clip of Mignolet’s error was posted on Twitter:
