Liverpool have been terribly unlucky with fitness issues this season. Jürgen Klopp has lost nearly the entire squad to illness and injury at some point or another. The Reds are still within touching distance of the top despite these problems. Though there’s been more to worry about; some Liverpool fans have reacted to the latest Joel Matip injury news.
Matip injury news
There is nothing more frustrating than an uber talented, perpetually injured footballer.
The Reds have been plagued by these mercurial talents over the years.
From Danny Agger and Lucas Leiva to Naby Keita and Adam Lallana.
You just want to see them put a run of games together and show you what they can do but as soon as they’re shining they’re out again.

We haven’t seen our Cameroonian centre back since the disappointing draw with West Brom.
James Pearce has delivered some Joel Matip injury news, saying the defender is running out of time to prove his fitness ahead of Sunday’s game with Man United – he didn’t train today.
Should Joel Matip not make the starting lineup on Sunday then the Reds have few options available to them.
In fact, we realistically have three: Rhys Williams, Nat Phillips and Jordan Henderson.
We started with Hendo at the back against Southampton and it didn’t work out for us.
The Reds missed his influence in the midfield. Whereas Rhys Williams was sloppy against Aston Villa and Nat Phillips was found out by Callum Wilson.
There are no comfortable options.

James Pearce put the news to people along with a poll on our options.
It’s safe to say Kopites are a touch sad about the development.
That’s one way of doing it..
Fans are a touch fed up.
Yet suggestions were made.
