Mignolet - Derby draw can boost us

Simon Mignolet feels Liverpool's 3-3 draw in the Merseyside derby with Everton shows they have the resilience to claim a top-four spot.

The Reds made a fast start to Saturday's clash at Goodison Park, taking an early lead through Philippe Coutinho but found themselves 3-2 down going into the final five minutes before Daniel Sturridge sealed a point with a header.

Liverpool undoubtedly had chances to win the match but would have been in big trouble without the Belgian who pulled off a string of wonderful saves.

The point kept the Reds right in contention for a Champions League spot and Mignolet feels they can use the point to move on to bigger and better things in their search for a top-four finish.

"I have to be honest, I think once you go behind at 3-2 with only five minutes to play, you are going to be worried that you'll lose the game," he said. "But luckily, Daniel was there to score the equaliser. The result made sure that we continued in the manner that we have started our season.

"We need to make sure that we build on that. If we can get the three points next week, then this will turn out to be a good point."

Despite the Reds fast start, the competitive nature of the Premier League this term means it could be difficult for them to stay in the Champions League places and punters may instead choose to use their free bet to back Brendan Rodgers' men to finish in the top six.
