Liverpool dealt injury blow with Matip set to miss at least three weeks

The Cameroon international has a muscle problem but there is better news on the fitness of Joe Gomez, who also missed the 2-0 win at Chelsea

Liverpool have been dealt a blow with Joel Matip set to be ruled out for at least three weeks with a muscle injury.

Matip missed Sunday’s 2-0 win at Chelsea with the problem, sustained during training at Melwood last week, and manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed afterwards that the issue would keep the 29-year-old out until after next month’s international break.

It is the latest in a long line of setbacks for Matip, who managed just 13 appearances in all competitions last season and who has started only one league game in the last 11 months.
