Upon receiving the award at Melwood, Mignolet said: "Every time you come into a new club, when you get recognised by the supporters, it makes it easier to play on the pitch and I'm very happy and pleased I've won the Standard Chartered Player of the Month.

"I'm looking forward to keeping my performance up now and making sure I do the same throughout the whole season.

"I don't really like to look back, but I think I can be pleased with how things have started. When you join a new club, you always have to settle a bit and then make sure that when the games are there that you do you your job.

"I'm pleased with how it's gone so far but I don't want to get carried away, I want to keep my feet on the ground and make sure I can do the best I can."
