Criticism of Simon Mignolet has been a constant theme of his two-and-a-half years at Liverpool.

The Belgian goalkeeper, a £9million signing from Sunderland in 2013, has had good spells at the club, but overall has not lived up to that high price-tag.

Fans of the Reds were shocked when he signed a new five-year deal earlier this month, especially with Liverpool linked with numerous goalkeepers during the transfer window. 

In one of the best matches of the season, Liverpool went 1-0 up before Norwich came back to shock Liverpool and take a 3-1 lead.

However, the Reds pulled a goal back almost immediately before mounting a brilliant comeback to make it 4-3.

Then in the 92nd minute Sebastian Bassong look like he had salvaged a draw for the home side, firing in a brilliant striker to make it 4-4.

There was yet more drama, though, as Adam Lallana pounced on a poor defensive header to win the game in the 94th minute.

Despite the victory, 

Liverpool fans were not happy with the goalkeeper. At all.

In fact, as the full-time whistle blew, Mignolet had conceded 10 goals from the last 14 shots he has faced that were on target.

Here is some of the best reaction:

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp even managed to break his glasses in celebration.
