Liverpool Sweat On Matip’s Fitness Ahead Of Man United Showdown

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of Joel Matip ahead of their massive clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

The centre-back is recovering from an adductor injury suffered against West Brom on December 27 and Jurgen Klopp’s side have suffered in his absence.

United will be licking their lips at the prospect of facing Fabinho and whoever the Reds slot in to partner him if Matip does not make it.

He is completing specially prepared sessions with physios in a bid to be fit in time for the table-topping game.

The Cameroon international is working on grass again but has not trained alongside his team-mates yet, according to the Mirror.

He needs to come through two sessions with the rest of the squad without any adverse effects to his injury for him to be considered for the United showdown.

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez’s long-term absences were papered over well initially by Liverpool but they have felt the loss of the two first-choice central defenders in recent weeks.
