Liverpool have been hard hit by injuries this term. The Reds have seen their side devastated by a series of cruel blows. Jürgen Klopp must be wondering when his back luck will end. The January transfer deadline saw a flurry of activity and now we know why. Fans have reacted to the latest Joel Matip injury news; he’s out for the season.
Liverpool deadline day moves
The 1st of February was an unusual day for Kopites.
For once, we were actually busy on deadline day.
The Reds were hard at work securing reinforcements for the defence.
Sunday evening saw a deal agreed for Ben Davies from Preston North End.

The 25-year-old’s switch was confirmed by the club on Monday evening.
The big deal of the day was Liverpool securing long term target Ozan Kabak on loan until the end of the season, the Reds having an option to buy the defender for £18m in the summer.
Joel Matip injury news
Last week our Cameroonian centre back limped off at halftime.
The towering defender didn’t make it out for the second half and has since undergone a specialist assessment.
Last night the club delivered the Joel Matip injury news none of us wanted to hear.
Joel Matip will miss the rest of the season through injury.
The Cameroonian’s ankle ligament problem is severe enough that we can’t expect him back before pre-season.
The diagnosis puts the club’s deadline day flurry into context and furthers the need for Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies to get up to speed quickly.
