Despite dominating most of the game, Liverpool managed just one goal, courtesy of Daniel Sturridge.
When Reds defender Daniel Agger handled the ball in the danger area three minutes from time to give away a penalty, some thought Brendan Rodgers would have to settle for a point in his team's opening Premier League game, but Mignolet kept out Jonathan Walters' spot kick to ensure Liverpool the victory.
The goalkeeper told the club's official website that it was not often he found himself hailed as a match-winner.
"The penalty save was an incredible moment because it more or less meant we had won the game, it doesn't really happen that a goalkeeper directly secures the points. You can't score goals so for something like this to come around is great and will help my confidence for the next game," Mignolet stated.
"You don't keep a clean sheet on your own. The whole back four did a magnificent job. Sturridge scored the winner, I saved a penalty. Next week someone else will do something."
With Agger considered a vital part of the defence line Mignolet spoke of, Reds fans were undoubtedly relieved when the Danish international insisted on his intentions to stay with the club despite rumoured interest from Barcelona.
"Barcelona are obviously a big club, but I have never thought about leaving Liverpool, unless they want to sell," Agger revealed to The Daily Mail.
"Everyone at the club are an integral part of my life. I have a YNWA tattoo. Frankly I don't mind if we don't finish in the top four, I love the club."
Liverpool's next Premier League fixture sees them take on Aston Villa on Saturday.
