Simon Mignolet is confident that Liverpool can build on their successful start to the season as the keeper admitted to being excited to play alongside the club's new signings.

Mignolet made the move to Merseyside from Sunderland at the beginning of the transfer window and has so far been a successful acquisition for the club, keeping three clean sheets in their opening league matches.

And on the back of a confidence-boosting win over Manchester United and looking at their current position at the top of the table Mignolet says the side will get even better now that Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori are on board as well.

"I saw back in Belgium when I was on international duty that the club also signed three more players at the end of the transfer window - which is always good to get competition inside the dressing room," he told the Liverpool website.

"We have a very good squad at the moment to go ahead and play the remainder of the season.

"It's a confident feeling looking at the table. I saw it on the television when I came back from Belgium.

"We have to make sure we continue in the manner that we started the league, starting with a very important game on Monday against Swansea. Hopefully we can do the same thing as we have done in the games we have already played."

Brendan Rodgers has continually insisted that winning the title is not a realistic goal for the Reds just yet but the side are hoping that their positive start can put them in the equation for a top four finish as the campaign progresses.

With eight new faces joining the squad in the off-season there will certainly be increased competition across the board. Even in the goalkeeping position Mignolet will be aware that although Pepe Reina is on loan he remains a highly thought-of keeper at the club.

But the 25 year old insists that he's happy and settled at Liverpool now and after some top-class performances feels he's lost the nerves that were present when the stopper first made the move to the club.

"Since I joined the club and after the games we have played, we can be very happy with how we've started," he explained. "Three games won and that's what you want to start to the season.

"When you join the club as a new goalkeeper you want to do well in the first few games you play; keeping three clean sheets helped me to settle and also my confidence. It's a good way to start."
