Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he'll help Simon Mignolet emerge from his form slump.

In recent weeks the keeper's mistakes have also been punished by Stoke City, Chelsea and Manchester City.

"Confidence wise it is important for me to lift all the players," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo. "And for Simon, it is something I will reinforce with him.

"He is still an outstanding goalkeeper but when you make those mistakes they get highlighted more as a keeper.

"He will be disappointed with the second one because it is a basic cross into the box and he should deal with it. We're then 2-0 behind and it's uphill for us.

"But he has come here because he's an outstanding goalkeeper and, I repeat, you don't lose your talent.

"Players will succeed if they have a confidence and part of my job is to help deliver that confidence to them."
