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.

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:
