Matip set to miss three weeks with groin injury, confirms Klopp

Liverpool defender Joel Matip is expected to miss the next three weeks after suffering a groin injury.

Joel Matip is facing around three weeks on the sidelines due to a groin injury sustained against West Brom, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Matip was forced off on the hour mark against the Baggies on Sunday, with Rhys Williams coming on in his place.

The defender’s absence was felt as Semi Ajayi snatched a late equaliser for West Brom, and the former Schalke man was not in the squad when Liverpool faced Newcastle United on Wednesday.

It proved to be another frustrating match for the Reds, who drew for a second successive fixture as they were held to a 0-0 stalemate – the first goalless game between Newcastle and Liverpool since 1974.

Following the draw at St James’ Park, Klopp confirmed he is set to be without the centre-back for approximately three weeks.
