      After international break, but with the way Matip's playing, no need to rush him.

      Anyone know the latest on Joe? Back in full training? Might be on the bench for Southampton?

      Back in full training, just a case of sharpening up by the sounds of it.

      Can’t wait for this kid to be back , Matip has filled in nicely but this kid is a rolls Royce next to Virgil , coming back at a vital time too .

      Good to hear Joe is close but Matip has done well so will be interesting to see if/when he gets back in.

      I think he will get back in, lots of tough games coming up and despite just how good Matip has been, I don't think he has reached the level of performances Gomez was putting in. But none the less, its great to have these options, especially at such a big time of the season.

      Jesus Christ! Get Gomez back in as soon as possible. Matip was absolutely shocking last night and has hardly been an impeccable performer in his time here.

      The only good thing about Matip in the side is that it keeps Lovren out.

      No fan of Matip but he did do a good tackle when Redmond left Fabinho for dead and was running into the box right at him.

      That being said when that's Hazard not Redmond next week it could well have a different outcome. We will have to defend better in midfield because at times the entire starting midfield neglected their defensive duties. Wijnaldum didn't track a runner for the goal, Keita was out of position/looking to break forward depending on your viewpoint and Fab lunged in and got skint a few times.

      If Hazard is left to run at any of the back 4 unchallenged he will really hurt us. In a recent interview he said Anfield was his favourite ground to play at and one he always does well at. We will have to be better protect whoever it is who plays with VVD.

      I'd like to get Joe back as soon as possible but will he slot right back in or need games, its a very tricky decision as Matip is doing OK and it might be dangerous to disrupt it.  I guess it will be decided in training.

      Need to get him back on the field ASAP as he brings so much quality to the team. Matip has performed admirably but Joe is a level above

      Matip has done nothing to be warranted to be dropped, joe needs a game or two for the under 23's

      I think Matip has been excellent too, but I feel a fully fit on form Gomez gives us so much more.

      Actually, I could see Joe getting some time at RB in place of TAA. Trent has been in poor form recently and Joe might be a good option to spell him a bit.

      Don't get me wrong, joe had been excellent but he hasn't had any game time for aged, not the time to just throw him in

      Obviously a fully fit Gomez is 1st choice starter with VVD.
      But he's been out a looong time, and Matip has done well enough since coming in.
      And coming to the end of the season, were every game is important, Jürgen would have to be pretty sure Joe is ready, and match sharp, before replacing Matip in what has been a settled back 4 for months.

      Joe is our starter, that is clear, but coming from such a long layoff and with Matip playing as well as he is, no need to rush him. Get him some minutes with the U23s and make sure he is fully ready before playing because every game is too important to let him find his feet in one of them.

      We also have Lovren back so it's not like we're hurting for numbers. Take a patient approach and maybe he could be our RB, as FL Red mentioned, and give Arnold a break.

      Fully agree. Plus, you can't just throw Joe in against Hazard / Higuaín with one game under his belt, would be unfair on the young lad and Matip.
