Mignolet made four saves and was beat late on by a Jagielka strike in Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.

Mignolet narrowly missed out on the clean sheet again, now only having one in six matches on the season. The low probability of clean sheets has depressed the Belgian shot stopper's fantasy value since he arrived on Merseyside. Next week's matchup at home, against West Brom, is as good as it gets, but fantasy owners should still proceed with caution until the Liverpool defense can tighten things up with their new signings.

Mignolet needed only one save to pick up his first clean sheet of the season in Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

Mignolet had a fairly easy day as the Liverpool back line was much more organized. With a pair of good matchups coming up against Aston Villa and West Ham, Mignolet has the opportunity to build on this performance and reward patient fantasy owners.

Mignolet was beaten three times while recording one save in Liverpool's 1-3 loss to Manchester City on Monday,

Mignotlet had a rough time against the champions Manchester City and was again let down by disorganization of his defenders. Last years theme continues with the Liverpool back line allowing opposing offenses too much space and time on the ball near the goal. Next week's trip to White Hart Lane could again prove a tough matchup, so fantasy owners should avoid the Belgian shot stopper if possible.

Mignolet allowed one goal while making five saves in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

Mignolet had a decent game but missed out on the clean sheet when Nathaniel Clyne drilled a shot into the top of the net. The Liverpool defense was under quite a bit of pressure for periods of the game and looked somewhat erratic despite having improved their back line over the off season. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect to get much out of next week's matchup, when Liverpool head to Manchester to take on the champions, Manchester City.

Mignolet kept a clean sheet in Liverpool's 4-0 preseason victory over Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.

Mignolet had a solid first season at Liverpool, but suffered mightily from a shaky defense in front of him. The Belgian shot stopper only managed 10 clean sheets after allowing 50 goals, an average of 1.32 per match, last season. The good news is manager Brendan Rodgers has beefed up the Reds' options in defense, setting up Mignolet as a solid fantasy option going into the 2014-2015 season. The new-look Liverpool defense will start things off with a good matchup in gameweek 1, when they welcome a depleted Southampton squad to Anfield.

Mignolet finished his first year in a Liverpool shirt, with 10 clean sheets and 107 saves, putting him in the top third in both categories. The Belgian keeper was one of only three goalies to play the maximum possible minutes on the season, and should be viewed a solid fantasy option next year.

Mignolet made four saves and allowed two goals in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

Mignolet had a solid game and did well to limit the damage to two goals. The Belgian keeper looks to be a good option for fantasy owners over the remainder of the season, with matchups against Norwich, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Newcastle to close things out.

Mignolet didn't record any saves on the day and allowed one goal in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday.

Mignolet was beat on a controversial corner, claiming he was fouled by Andy Carroll. Fantasy owners will most likely want to stay away from the Reds' keeper, as Liverpool welcome Manchester City to Anfield in a clash between the leagues most potent offenses next weekend.
