Liverpool's Matip ruled out for rest of season

Liverpool's Matip ruled out for rest of season”

'The centre-back sustained the issue during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The 26-year old picked up the injury during Saturday's 2-1 win against Crystal Palace and afterwards he had to be assessed by medical staff.

Manchester City must plan without Sergio Aguero for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg at Anfield after the Argentina striker was ruled out with a knee injury.

Liverpool announced the news on their website, saying in a statement: "Joel Matip is likely to require an operation on a thigh injury, Liverpool can confirm". However the long season is finally catching up with Jurgen Klopp's side with a spate of injuries mounting up as we hit the last two months of the season. "There is a little hope, of course, that we can maybe use him again this season, but we have to wait".

The former Cameroon worldwide managed one goal which came in the 4-1 victory over West Ham in the Premier League on November 4.

Matip has been a key player for the Reds this season and together with January signing Virgil van Dijk, has been pivotal in fixing Liverpool's early season defensive problems.

Klopp will likely provide further updates on Matip when he sits down for his pre-match press conference on Tuesday afternoon. Gomez and Klavan not involved, neither is Ben Woodburn.
