Liverpool defender Joel Matip has started the season well in the Premier League with him and Virgil van Dijk both in the side.

It’s clear the two get on well off of the pitch and also on it with them recording clean sheets against the likes of Norwich City, Burnley and Leeds United.

Indeed, it’s been an impressive start and Matip has shown his offensive attributes too with the way he bursts forward – helping spark our first goal against Leeds on Saturday:

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Matip is a top class defender and when he is fit and on the pitch he is a reminder that we have more than just Virgil van Dijk in the backline that can have a big impact.

It’s great to see how he has started this season.
