Liverpool have lost most of their first team to the treatment table at some time or another this season. The Reds have seen key players drop out of the side at vital times yet somehow Jürgen Klopp has steered the lads to top of the Premier League table. We could have some fitness news to celebrate. Kopites have been ecstatic at the latest Joel Matip injury update.

It was subsequently reported that the Cameroonian would miss three weeks of action.
James Pearce has offered an optimistic Joel Matip injury update, telling the Red Agenda Podcast:
“[Matip] should be back…the hope is that he will be fit for the Man United game which is looming large on the horizon.”
What RTK has to say
This Joel Matip injury news is the best news we could hope for.
The Reds desperately need him back so that we can get some balance back into the side.
Whilst Jordan Henderson performed admirably at centre back we miss his presence in the midfield.
Matip is also an accomplished passer of the ball, crucial to our build up play.
