Reds to stay on front foot
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet says the team need to stay positive if they are to continue their strong start to the season.
Hull City are the visitors to Anfield this weekend and the Reds will be looking to again make a fast start in the game, as they have done by scoring early in their last three matches which all ended in victory.
The Merseysiders play a pressing game under Jurgen Klopp whereby they are on the front foot from the word go, and the Belgium stopper is eyeing a repeat of that positive approach against the Tigers.
"The gaffer wants us to do that," he told Liverpoolfc.com. "He has always been one who tries to press high and early, to start the game lively and angry, and to take the game to the opponents rather than to sit off and wait to see what happens.
"We want to start on the front foot, to not give a breather to the opponents. We’ll have to do that again, put them under pressure from the very beginning, then hopefully we can keep that momentum throughout the game.
"We worked very hard in pre-season to make sure that fitness levels are there to maintain that pressure game throughout 95 minutes. Everybody is ready to do that."
