Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet insists his side’s attitude and commitment will stand them in good stead in the Europa League final.
The Reds will take on Sevilla at FC Basel’s St Jakob-Park in Switzerland next Wednesday after they overcame Villarreal in the semi-finals.
Jurgen KloppÂ’s showed their never say die attitude once again on Wednesday night when they fought back late on to secure a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Anfield.
Eden Hazard had given the Blues the lead but Christian Benteke stepped off the bench to tap the ball into the back of the net in stoppage-time after a mistake from goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
Liverpool also showed plenty of fight in their quarter-finals win over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League and Mignolet believes it will give them a better chance of winning the trophy, which you can back using your free bet.
“You just want to go into the final with confidence and the only way to do that is by putting in performances,” the goalkeeper is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“I think the biggest message this shows is that if you don’t start well, or play how we played in the first half, we can get into trouble.
“But we never give up – something the gaffer always talks about. It doesn’t look like any coincidence any more, that we score in the late stages. We have to keep that going. We have to show that mentality to never be beaten.”
Mignolet was part of the team that lost the Capital One Cup final to Manchester City earlier this season and the Belgian believes that disappointment will drive them on.
He added: “I remember Kolo [Toure] saying after the game sometimes you have to lose a final to know how it feels.Â
“We don’t want to go through that again. Sevilla are a really good side, they have got the experience in this competition, have won it many times and gone far in it.”
