Liverpool fans react to update on Joel Matip and Fabinho

Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United is now just two days away.

The Reds will be hoping to add to their points tally of 61 with a win at home against the Red Devils. With a 27-point gap between the two sides, they will be confident they can do just that.

The big fat Liverpool quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Anfield?

In January 2019, by how many centimetres were Liverpool denied scoring a goal against Manchester City?

Jurgen Klopp has also provided news of a boost ahead of the game as well, revealing that both Fabinho and Joel Matip are likely to be in the squad this weekend after returning from injury – as reported by James Pearce.

Unsurprisingly, this has got plenty of Liverpool fans talking, and it is fair to say they are delighted with the news.

Having these two back is huge for Klopp. Fabinho was called the best defensive midfielder in the world by Gary Neville (Sky Sports via Metro) back in September, whilst before he was forced on to the sidelines, Joel Matip was Virgil van Dijk’s regular partner at the heart of the Liverpool defence, playing six Premier League games in a row.

Will Liverpool beat Man United on Sunday?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, some fans do not want them to start against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, fearing that they may not be ready for such a heated game just yet…

Given that they have not played first-team football for a considerable amount of time, it would be wise not to include them from the start. But such is the nature of the contest, it remains to be seen whether the former Borussia Dortmund manager calls on the duo on Sunday and throws them right into the deep end.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans react to worrying international tournament news.
