The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are sat around the pool table trying to figure out what Simon Mignolet was doing last night…
In fairness, the Belgian had a pretty good game, but whilst he did save the game by keeping a Diego Costa penalty out – nobody is talking about that.
Instead, everyone is talking about the howler that the Belgian had when facing David Luiz’s free kick. Despite the referee clearly blowing his whistle, Mignolet was, seemingly, still preparing his wall – allowing Luiz to smash the ball into the back of the net with ease.
It was a great finish by the Brazilian defender, but there is no doubting that Mignolet should have done better – especially given that the Belgian wasn’t even looking at the ball when it hit the back of the net.
Expectedly, the fans in the Transfer Tavern erupted when the ball went in – with most laughing at Mignolet, rather than celebrating Luiz’s wonderful finish.
See that Twitter thought of the howler below…
Legend has it mignolet is still organising his wall …..

You might think that was a good save from Mignolet, but he was actually only then diving to save the David Luiz free kick.

What on earth was Mignolet doing?! He wouldn't of saved that anyway, exquisite technique by Luiz
Luiz take a bow but what was Mignolet doing? Looks like he was thinking about what to have for dinner #MOTD

What was Mignolet doing though? Whistle clearly blown yet he wasn't nearly ready for it to be taken. Awful.

Mignolet will want to forget that one quickly, but we aren’t sure that the Twitter fans will let him…
