Liverpool keeper Mignolet won't hear criticism of his defence

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet refuses to blame his defenders for their poor goals conceded record.

They have kept just one clean-sheet in the last 12 games but Mignolet refused to blame uncertainties in defence.

He said: "All the players who are there are professional enough to deal with that.

"All the defenders here are very organised, motivated and concentrated.

"We need to do a job. It doesn't matter as a keeper who is in front of me.

"I work day in, day out with the lads. I know what they can do and it doesn't affect me whether the defenders change.

"You want to keep clean sheets - that is what I am there for - but you are just one part of the team."
