Mignolet In Team Of Easter (19/4/17)

Mignolet In Team Of Easter (19/4/17)

Liverpool are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by goalkeeper Simon Mignolet in the one nil victory over West Bromwich Albion at the weekend at The Hawthorns was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected Mignolet as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'For the second consecutive week I have picked Simon Mignolet in my team. The Belgium international made a save that won the match against West Brom and prompted manager Jurgen Klopp to hug his players in sheer relief at a result that got him out of jail. To be perfectly honest, Liverpool should have won this game comfortably. They dominated most elements of the match and should have scored at least one more, especially when Ben Foster became obsessed with joining the Albion attack in the final minutes as if he was going to somehow provide the equaliser. Nevertheless it has been Mignolet who has proved to be Klopp's most valuable asset in the past couple of games.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Mignolet for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Simon Mignolet (Liverpool), Jesus Navas (Manchester City), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Marcos Rojo (Manchester United), Leroy Sane (Manchester City), Ross Barkley (Everton), Ander Herrera (Manchester United), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Marko Arnautovic (Stoke City), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)
