      What a free signing. This was very early in Jurgens reign and I think he eyed him up whilst in Germany. Another masterstroke from the boss. All the plaudits Laporte, Dias, Rudiger etc get they want to shine some light on this legend. He's stayed fit all season too. Well done to him.

      Our unsung hero. Joel has been so good this season.
      He's been here 6 years and there's only 34 pages in his thread. He really flies under the radar but he's played a major part in our achievements.

      So I dont know where to post this because I dont see a dedicated thread for it (understandable) but I want to give big kudos (as if they would be reading this haha) to the medical team and fitness coach(es).

      Joel used to play a game or two then miss 5, then come back, play a couple and miss another 5. Same goes for Keita who apart from an injury or two that were, in my opinion, more of the inevitable type (like when that c**t Pogba tried to break his ankle) stayed healthy. The difference between their current fitness levels and the fitness level they had in past season is just unbelievable. Even Thiago who missed a few games through injury seems to be doing much better than last season (overall)

      With that said, I think Matip is probably top 5 most underrated players in this league. This guy has been an absolute rock at the back with VVD. Fast, strong, always manages to tackle the ball without fouling the opponent, massive in the air (both defensively and offensively), drives opposing defences absolutely crazy every time he decides to go on one of his adventures, etc. The Legend!!!

      Haven't had to say this in awhile but word is he's out due to injury, Gomez likely to start Monday night. So now we have a mini-CB crisis it appears.....

      Hopefully isn't anything too serious, good opportunity for Gomez to reclaim a starting spot next to VvD and I am not overly worried in having Nat as 3rd option as long as it isn't for a long period of time.

      We really aren’t having any luck on the injury front are we? Don’t think I’ve quite seen anything like this one game in to the season.

      This might be a normal unlucky injury you pick up in training, but if we begin seeing signs of him ''re-becoming'' injury prone then I'm going to go ahead and say it would be a good idea to bench him and quickly promote Gomez or Konate so that we get a stable CB pairing as early as possible in the season. It's one of those positions where you don't want to change things every 2 or 3 weeks

      Konate's out injured too!!

      It'll be Gomez against Palace, with Philips on the bench.

      Well if Matip going to keep hurt then it is up to Gomez/Konate to make that position theirs while he is out. Klopp has shown in the past he will go with whoever is performing next to VvD despite what another players previous form was.

      Trouble is, whilst he's out, Konate is also out. Gomez has played very little football over the last couple of years so there's every chance he could easily pick up an injury playing regular again over the coming games given his record.

      This is true, that is why hoping Matip can be fit in a couple week times. Gomez could one game a week and mix Nat couple mid-week games (Newcastle, UCL matchday 1) but this isn't long term solution.
