The most interesting stat here is perhaps Mignolet’s low pass completion rate – but this perhaps could be attributed to the tactics his manger, Martin O’Neill for the majority of the season, employed. 11 clean sheets in a team fighting relegation is impressive.

Reina made six errors resulting in goals, while Mignolet made two, both occasions leading to goals conceded.
