Jurgen Klopp was forced into setting up against Manchester United without Joel Matip, with captain Jordan Henderson starting in place of the centre-half.
It’s obviously not what Liverpool fans wanted going into the game, with the skipper absence in midfielder likely to be felt throughout the big game, but the boss did issue a positive update on our No.32.
Matip will resume full first-team training as of tomorrow – he’s been “part” of training for the last two days, which wasn’t enough to convince Klopp he should start against United.
