Matip's injury adds to Liverpool’s woes

Fri 29 January 2021 | 10:06

The Cameroonian, who started the game at centre-back along with Jordan Henderson, was substituted at half-time due to an ankle injury.

Matip

was replaced by

Nat

Phillips

, who made his fourth Premier League appearance, at half-time. The 29-year-old was recently returned from injury in the surprise 1-0 defeat to

Burnley

.

However, Jurgen Klopp suggested it was not a serious problem, he told his post-match interview:

"That’s our situation at the moment. Actually, it was nothing really. He just felt something and we had to take him out and now he’s out. It was not a challenge or an intense situation or whatever, it was just how things happen."

Liverpool

will play an in-form West Ham side on Sunday, who started Thursday a point ahead of them in fourth place.

After playing the Hammers, the Reds will play Brighton at home before a string of high-stakes games against

Manchester

City

,

Leicester

,

RB

Leipzig

and

Everton

.
