Liverpool injury list lengthens with latest Joel Matip news

Joel Matip

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided a team news and injury update ahead of the game.

The Cameroon global sustained the problem in Saturday's 2-1 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace and will definitely miss the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.

It did not prevent him from completing the full 90 minutes at Selhurst Park as the Reds came from behind to win, but he was examined afterwards due to discomfort.

Liverpool Echo reporter James Pearce reports the Cameroon defender, 26, will undergo surgery on a thigh injury.

This is a blow for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, especially after losing Joe Gomez through injury over the global break, but now it is time for Lovren to step up and prove his doubters wrong.

Dejan Lovren is sure to take his place alongside Virgil Van Dijk for the visit of City in Wednesday's European quarter-final. Klopp also confirmed that Ragnar Klavan is still missing so he's desperately short of options in the middle of defence tomorrow night. Joe Gomez and Emre Can are two players who could cover there but are both on the injury report themselves. Max Stake £1. Winnings paid in free bets.
