Joel Matip injury boost for Liverpool ahead of Anfield clash with West Ham United
Matip trained on Tuesday with Liverpool during their warm weather break in Barcelona
Matip trained on Tuesday with Liverpool during their warm weather break in Barcelona after missing Sunday’s calamitous defeat to Bournemouth with an ankle injury.
The Cameroon centre-half has been hugely impressive for Liverpool and the Reds’ only two defeats this season have come when he has been crocked.
Liverpool have conceded nine goals in the 11 Premier League games he has played, which is the same total they have leaked in the three matches without him.
Matip, 25, trained with his team-mates this morning at the Centre Alt Rendiment in Saint Cugat.
He did extra work with fitness coach Andreas Kornmayer to sharpen his fitness following his lay-off.
Sadio Mane also trained after picking up a knock against Bournemouth.
Liverpool will watch Barcelona’s Champions League game against Borussia Monchengladbach at the Nou Camp tonight before flying home on Wednesday morning.
