Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to state that they think Joel Matip is better than Manchester United’s Harry Maguire.
The England international moved from Leicester to Old Trafford this summer in a deal worth £85m, as the Red Devils looked to shore up their defence.
Maguire impressed on his debut against Chelsea and won the Man of the Match award, but he has since been unable to prevent United from drawing to Wolves and losing to Crystal Palace.
On the other hand, Matip has starred alongside Virgil van Dijk and scored the opener against Arsenal at the weekend as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners.
The Cameroonian arrived at Anfield on a free transfer, whereas Maguire’s transfer to United set a new record for the world’s most expensive defender. He has proved to be a bargain, playing a huge part in the Reds’ Champions League triumph.
Let’s take a look at the discussion amongst the Liverpool fans on Twitter, who are clearly convinced that their 28-year-old centre-back is better than Maguire…
Joel Matip > Harry Maguire.
And he was FREE. #LFC

Maguire is a good defender, just nothing as good as Matip.
Nothing bad about it, Matip is not not as good as Van Dijk, don’t see us LFC fans complaining about it.
We did pay 75 million for Van Dijk, but he turned out a bargain.
