Liverpool keeper Mignolet: Stoke clash introduced me to Kop

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet admits today's opponents Stoke City will always be special to him.

Earlier this season, against Stoke Mignolet became an instant hero, saving a late ­penalty from Jonathan Walters.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "I ­received a lot of reaction saying that it had been a while since the atmosphere was like that at Anfield at the end of a game.

"Everyone was talking about how they felt, the moment it happened. For me personally, I don't really feel it that way because it happens so quickly.

"Looking back, if you take the story into account, the fact that it's your debut at home, it's the 88th minute, it's one-nil and you can save a penalty.

"It's something that you dream of.

"It's nice to look back. But Sunday is a new game.

"A new ninety minutes to play. Three points to win, three points to lose.

"It's a new job in hand, to make sure we do the right things."
