Simone Mignolet hopes Liverpool ends title drought against Man City

Liverpool goalkeeper Simone Mignolet is hopeful the side can end their long time trophy-less drought in League Cup final against Man City on Sunday.

The Reds last won a trophy four years back against Cardiff City in League Cup final and since then their title hopes in every competition has fallen into a deep sea.

Simon Mignolet made reference to Chelsea’s 2005 League Cup victory after they beat Liverpool 3-2 at final stage and the Blues have built on that success with additional 11 trophies.

And Simon Mignolet thinks winning against Man City on Sunday will inspire them to achieve more titles for the foreseeable future.

“I remember for Chelsea a few years back. It was the League Cup they won and after that they managed to win a lot of trophies, it gives everybody a confidence boost when you win your first trophy for a long time.”

“For this young group of lads, I think it could be something that pushes us on to be even hungrier for trophies,” the Belgium international said.

Jurgen Klopp was appointed six months ago after Brendan Rodgers was sacked and winning the trophy will be a massive boost for the Reds who fans are hungry for title.

Liverpool have Europa League second leg tie at home to Augsburg on Thursday before taking on Man City on Monday.
