Joel Matip was the surprise goalscoring hero at Anfield on a night where he scored for the 10th time for Liverpool but there was another statistic that caught his attention.
Our No.32 joined Virgil van Dijk for a post-match interview with Des Kelly from BT Sport and he was asked: “Tell us when your last Champions League goal was, do you remember?”.
The former Schalke man replied with: “No, not really to be honest”.
To which he was informed: “Nine years ago”.
The exhale from our No.4 was matched by his centre-back partner stating: “That is a long time ago – oh my god!”.
Yet another example as to why we love our 31-year-old marauding defender.
