Liverpool shot-stopper Simon Mignolet has insisted the Reds are not thinking of the Premier League title as of now and are taking the season game by game.
Jurgen Klopp’s men had to settle in for a 2-2 draw against David Moyes’ Sunderland on Monday, despite leading twice during the game.
The Reds dropped two points against the relegation-battling Black Cats and league leaders Chelsea now have a cushion of five points and have a game in hand, which they will play on Wednesday against Tottenham Hotspur.
Mignolet, who failed to stop the two penalties from Jermain Defoe, said his side are not talking about their Premier League title chances but are determined to fight for every trophy.
“We are not really thinking about that”, Mignolet told the club’s official website, when asked about the result affecting their title hopes.
“We will just look to the next game.
“We have played two games in quick succession, we have got the FA Cup tie at the weekend so we will prepare for that game because we want to go as far as we can in the FA Cup”, added the Belgian.
The 28-year-old said the Reds are focusing on giving their best in every competition and explained: “We want to fight for every trophy domestically so we will try to do that and prepare ourselves the best we can for that and after that we will see what comes next.”
Mignolet has kept five clean sheets for Liverpool this season in 13 games in all competitions. He will be aiming to make a significant contribution in the upcoming games for his side.
The Reds are currently placed second in the Premier League table and will be eyeing staying close to Chelsea, whom they will face this month.
