The 28-year-old has been credited in recent weeks for his consistent performances at the back for the Reds, with manager Jurgen Klopp regarding him as one of “the best pieces of business” after arriving on a free transfer from Bundesliga side Schalke.

Matip has featured in seven Premier League games this season and scored during his side’s 3-1 win against Arsenal in August.

Fans believe that England international Joe Gomez can come in and do a similar job that Matip was doing alongside the colossus Virgil van Dijk.

The 22-year-old has featured in three Premier League games during the current campaign and continues to make a slow comeback after breaking his leg against Burnley last season.

One fan said that it will always be a problem without Matip but feels that Gomez has to start on Wednesday against Arsenal.
