Brendan Rodgers' management of Mario Balotelli has backfired

Simon Mignolet has chance to 'prove his worth' again, says Brendan Rodgers

The ESPN FC panel discuss Liverpool's 1-nil victory over Burnley and highlight Brendan Rodger's controversial substitution of goalkeeper Brad Jones at the half.

LIVERPOOL -- Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is still rebuilding his confidence as he bids to re-establish himself as the Reds' No. 1, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Mignolet, 26, was dropped on Dec. 14 after a poor run of form, but returned as a 16th-minute substitute at Burnley on Boxing Day as Brad Jones suffered a thigh injury in the 1-0 win.

The Belgium international, who had not played in his side's previous three matches, had "a couple of edgy moments" at Turf Moor, Rodgers acknowledged.
