Matip went down on the hour-mark in the cause of the game and was immediately substituted, with Jurgen Klopp replacing the player with Rhys Williams.

This is a big blow to the reigning Premier League champions who are already without defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez who are battling with long-term injuries.

Liverpool then went three points clear at the top of the Premier League after a frustrating 0-0 stalemate against a determined Newcastle United side on Wednesday, December 30.
