Liverpool defender Toure: Mignolet will snap form slump

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure says goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will recover from his form slump.

Toure believes Mignolet will prove to be an influential figure for the Reds between now and May.

"Simon will get through it as he is really strong mentally," Toure told the Liverpool Echo. "I told him that the life of defenders and goalkeepers is like this.

"You can play 120 games without making a mistake and then make two in two games and it's like you have to start all over again.

"All 'keepers have sticky patches but he is a strong guy and he knows he has a big part to play in the season.

"It's not only Simon, everyone needs to react. The back four could have done better with everything. We know we have a strong defence as before we were keeping clean sheets. We will work on that in training and make sure we are better in the future."
