The knock Simon Mignolet picked up in Liverpool's loss to Manchester United last weekend was not serious and the Belgian international is fit to play for his country during the international break.
Mignolet is behind Thibaut Courtois on the Belgian keeper depth chart but appears to be set to back up the Chelsea man for Belgium tomorrow as they take on Cyprus and then they face Israel on Tuesday. For fantasy managers and Liverpool fans though, what matters is that the Reds' #1 will be between the sticks against Arsenal in their next league game. Mar 27 - 6:30 PM

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet faces a race against time to be fit for Saturdays’ Euro 2016 qualifier after picking up an ankle injury during the defeat to Manchester United in GW30.

Mignolet was accidentally caught by a Wayne Rooney trailing leg during the second half on Sunday but did continue after treatment, however the ankle flared up overnight and he was sent for a precautionary scan. The Belgium stopper has resurrected his season after Brendan Rodgers dropped Mignolet for an "indefinite period" earlier in the campaign but a thigh injury for Brad Jones handed him a quick return and he hasn’t looked back since. Mignolet is ranked second in the Premier League for the number of clean sheets [12] – just two behind Fraser Forster – and although he was helpless to stop a Juan Mata double he was on hand to deny Rooney his first Anfield goal in 10 years with a wonderful penalty save.

Simon Mignolet registered his 2nd clean sheet in as many matches as Liverpool earn their 2nd 1-0 win to begin the season.

Migs is quickly becoming a legend at Anfield, causing fans just as quickly to forget about Pepe Reina. He didn't have to work as hard as last week against Stoke City, but the 3 saves he made were quality, and Liverpool were able to tame the beast that is Christian Benteke, who had already scored against top sides Chelsea and Arsenal. Mignolet is not only the top scoring keeper in the Yahoo game at the moment, he's the top scoring player, period. It's probably wise to avoid next week against Manchester United, but certainly looks worth every pound going forward.

Liverpool's defense nearly squandered a strong attacking performance by giving up a penalty late to Stoke but debutante Simon Mignolet came to the rescue.

The arrival of Simon Mignolet this summer created some controversy around Anfield this summer given the perceived poor treatment of Pepe Reina. Mignolet appeared a little nervous early but made some strong saves and eventually saved the day when Daniel Agger gave up a penalty late in the match. Mignolet dove to his right and saved Jon Walters' spot kick, preserved the win and ensured himself a very strong fantasy day as well.

Simon Mignolet joins Liverpool from Sunderland after passing a medical and signing a long-term contract.

Mignolet is only 25 and already one of the best keepers in the Premier League. This is a great long-term investment by the club getting younger and better at a key position. The next domino to fall will be Pepe Reina's inevitable move elsewhere.

Liverpool are set to sign Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for £9millon next week, according to BBC Sport.

The report states that the Belgium international is expected on Merseyside in the next few days to undergo a medical and complete the formalities of the move. His arrival will surely mean Pepe Reina is on his way out of Anfield, with Barcelona the most likely destination. Sunderland are interested in signing PSV Eindhoven goalkeeper Jereon Zoet as Mignolet's replacement.

Liverpool have made an initial 6.5 million pound bid for Sunderland's Simon Mignolet.

While it seems like this transfer is moving ahead, there are doubts. Sunderland are holding out for more money, and there are still other clubs interested in Mignolet (Arsenal, for instance). Meanwhile at Anfield, Reina's status is unclear and may still hinge on Victor Valedes' "will he or won't he" routine at Barcelona.

Paolo Di Canio is eyeing a £4million swoop for Celtic keeper Fraser Forster. The Sunderland boss fears losing No 1 Simon Mignolet to Arsenal and Forster wants to crack the England squad.

Forster was a star performer for Celtic last season but has voiced concerns that he is being ignored by Roy Hodgson because he doesn't play in the Premier League. Sunderland could need a quality replacement for Mignolet and Forster certainly fits the criteria.

The Sunday Mirror ­understand Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has moved into pole position to sign highly-rated Sunderland ­keeper Simon Mignolet in a £10million-plus deal this summer.

Mignolet was Sunderland's best performer by some distance this season but they may find it difficult to hold on to him if Arsenal come in with an official bid. If the Belgian international was to leave it is imperative that Paulo Di Canio gets all the money to spend on a replacement and to strengthen other areas of his squad.
