Liverpool Injury Update: Mixed News On Matip
Joel Matip Set To Miss Another Game Through Injury
Liverpool will need to play without Joel Matip for at least another game as the Cameroon international is set to miss out on Stoke’s Visit to Anfield in the coming days, the center back who was bought from the Bundesliga on a free transfer last summer has slotted into the Liverpool defense fairly well and his absence will be uninspiring as the Reds will be going into the festive period without one of their most reliable backline players.
Matip has been carrying the ankle injury ever since his time at Schalke and although it is good news in Jurgen Klopp assuring that he won’t be needing surgery, the discomfort is still enough to discourage him from taking the field. The injury has been likened to one that Steven Gerrard suffered during his playing days which actually turned out to be an infection and led to the former captain being sidelined for a significant time.
