Mignolet lost his place as Liverpool's first choice goalkeeper a year ago and he has only played in two domestic cup games this season for the Reds.

Despite falling to No.2, the Liverpool goalkeeper has claimed he is not upset over being a second fiddle to Alisson Becker due to the Brazilian brilliance so far this season.

Mignolet was initially cast aside for Loris Karius who struggled to impress at the club before Alison Becker was later signed in a £65million deal.

Mignolet told the Liverpool Echo:  “Yeah, I can accept it easier now.

"It's also the fact that the team is playing so well. Ali has been so important for the team.

"He has shown his strengths. He's up there with the top five keepers in the world, if not the best.

"He's a very natural goalkeeper. He's got a lot of talent and he's very fluent, he doesn't really think about stuff. It's all natural to him.

"He's playing as the No.1 for Brazil in front of Manchester City's goalkeeper – that says enough, really. I can accept that slightly better."

The Belgian international has helped the former Roma goalkeeper get to grips with the demands of English football.

"Ali and I work well together. We have a very good relationship," Mignolet added.

"I've picked up a few things from him and he's picked up a few things from me.

"I've been playing in the Premier League for 10 years now and certain things are different here compared to abroad. He asks me some questions and I try to answer them.

"He's very calm on the ball and I try to replicate that. I think I showed it in the FA Cup game against Wolves . We can bounce off each other and learn off each other.

"I respect him, not just for the player he is, but also for the person he is. I can learn Spanish from him too which is another benefit!"
