Liverpool fans were not especially impressed with Joel Matip for his role in Leicester’s opening goal today.
The Cameroonian played a sloppy pass that lost us possession in just the third minute. Eventually, Riyad Mahrez got on the ball and squared to Jamie Vardy, with the defence completely out of position.
The Englishman has now scored seven goals against us, annoyingly. He seems to always show up against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.
Matip actually played well for the rest of the half, but it didn’t stop supporters laying the blame at his door.
Matip for that goal was as bad as anything we’ve seen from Lovren all season. Plus Can was far too weak in the tackle that ensued from the loose ball.

Matip is the worst defender in our team. Atleast lovren has patches when he’s decent. Matip has been perpetual shit ever since signing him.

Matip is Shit. Plain and simple.

Matip just gifted the bloody goal. Leicester are happy to stay back and defend. No attacking threat from the other end since than gift.

We've actually played ok should've scored 1 or 2 but another defensive brain fart and this time from Matip's poor pass.

Keep the faith. Playing well but missing too many chances. Though Mahrez was offside for their goal which rankles a bit but it happens weekly now. Poor from Matip in the build-uo anyway. No goal without his sloppiness #LFC

Matip & Lovren partnership is dogshit thats a fact. Once we sort out which one complements Van Dijk we can fuck the other one off
