Joel Matip injury blow

Liverpool were held to a disappointing draw on Sunday evening.

The Reds dominated the game but had nothing to show for it at the final whistle.

Despite boasting 78% of the ball, the hosts just couldn’t break down Big Sam’s side.

Not only were points dropped but we were a man down too.

An hour into the tie Joel Matip picked up a game ending injury.

The Cameroonian tweaked something high up his leg and was forced off the pitch.

Rhys Williams came on for the 29-year-old, leaving Kopites anxious to find out the extent of the problem.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool losing Joel Matip to injury is a disaster.

We are now without a single senior centre back in the first team.

Fabinho is a makeshift option whilst Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams are inexperienced.

This blow should surely motivate the board to move for a centre back in January as opposed to waiting until the summer.

We can’t afford to let injury blows ruin our season.

Should Fabby also pick up a knock then we could be toast.

Fans fed up

Some fans believe we can’t rely on him any longer.

Enough is enough.

We need cover at the back.

Even Jamie Carragher has had enough, fans agree.

Whereas some Kopites are more positive.
