Mignolet: Lukaku Everton’s danger man

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet feels Romelu Lukaku is Everton's main threat in Saturday's Merseyside derby at Anfield.

Mignolet's Belgium international team-mate have had a fine season under Ronald Koeman so far, topping the Premier League scoring table with 21 goals so far.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the match against Liverpool's local rivals, admitted Lukaku is the Toffees' main man feels the 23-year-ol shouldn't be singled out.

"Lukaku is in a good moment and we will have to deal with him. We have to prepare ourselves for that but it's Liverpool against Everton, not us against Lukaku," Mignolet said.

"He has all the ability he needs to be a very good player in the Premier League. He has strength, finishing and he is very important for Everton.

"He can do as much as he wants to do in his whole career, we just have to try and keep him quiet this Saturday.

"In the end that's the main thing. As a club we want to meet our objectives to get into the Champions League next season."

Jurgen Klopp's side have claimed seven points from their last three matches and could move up to third place, albeit temporarily, with a victory over their local rivals.
