Liverpool had another wobble in the Premier League on Monday night as they were held to a 1-1 draw at West Ham United.
The Reds have moved three points clear at the top of the table, but Manchester City will have the chance to reclaim first spot when they travel to Everton on Wednesday, given that they have a better goal difference than their title competitors.
There was another start for Joel Matip at the London Stadium, with fellow central defenders Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren both currently on the sidelines for the Merseyside club.
West Ham’s equaliser on Monday came from a quick free-kick and Matip was one of those at fault for Michail Antonio’s goal.
Matip – a 2016 arrival from Schalke 04 – has largely found it difficult to put together a consistent run of performances for Liverpool.
And the English outfit’s fans have blasted the 27-year-old’s display against the Hammers.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Liverpool supporters can be seen below:

Lucky point in the end. Matip was awful. Klopp needs to have a word with himself letting Clyne go on loan #LFC

Also, Matip is so bad. Not commanding in the air. Far too slow moving the ball. Literally looks like Bambi on ice. The worst one, he always, when clearing the ball, puts it right into the middle of park. Everytime. Puts us right on the back foot.#WHULIV #LFC #YNWA
