Liverpool keeper Mignolet: Premier League Asia will provide a 'good base' for Reds' season​​

The Premier League Asia trophy will provide Liverpool with a 'good base' for the season, says Simon Mignolet.

The Reds will travel to Hong Kong next month to participate in the tournament, with Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace and Leicester City also featuring.

"You have to adapt to the time difference, and the heat will also help to prepare us for the season," the Belgium international told Premier League Productions.

"We'll be playing against Premier League teams and there is no better way to prepare for the Premier League than to play against teams that are featuring in it. That will give us a good base to start next year in a good way."
