Matip was exceptional again alongside Virgil van Dijk, building on his performance at the weekend against Bournemouth, where he was confident and assured.
With Joe Gomez already out through injury, the news is not good at all, although Dejan Lovren is back and came on as a late substitute for Trent Alexander-Arnold, who also limped off with a foot problem and will be assessed in the morning, according to David Maddock.
The injury to Matip means Lovren is almost certain to start against Manchester United at the weekend, although Jurgen Klopp might have opted to make that change regardless.
