      Comfortably in the top five CB in the league.

      And one of the most underrated players in the league I'd say as well

      The only issue is, being realistic, the most games we can expect from him this season is 15/20?

      First 3 years he played 30 plus games in all competitions and the last 2 years he played under 15 games. Personally think be good if we could get 25 games out of him but form he is in hard for Klopp not to pick him on a weekly basis with the form he is in.

      Agree, I love how he carries the ball into the opposition half.. secret weapon at times for us..

      So is the bet now on how many more games he can go before he breaks down again? ;D

      looking good along side his mate Virgil. We now have cover in abundance thankfully and we can give these giants a rest from time to time.

      Definitely one of my favourite displays tonight. Had a bit of a nightmare in the first half but was faultless in the second half. Takes some strength of character and mind to regroup and put in a display as good as that in the second half after the experiences of the first. Brilliant Joel!

      One of the things I like about Joel, every time he is written off either with injuries or a bad performance he comes back with some very good performances.

      Honestly thought he was done last year, come back and proved a lot of us wrong.

      Bro, he's been amazing this year. 🙌

      One of the most underrated players in the world for me. Doesn't get anywhere near the respect he deserves. Him and the big man in the team gives us as good a chance as the front 3.

      Whilst other players get the plaudits it’s fair to say that Big Joel is as key to the team as others

      If they redo the 100 players that shook the Kop then Matip imo would fly into the top 20

      Read that he’s considering coming out of international retirement for AFCON. It was Echo though so big grain of salt.

      To be fair when he does those runs he looks like Bambi on ice and has generally no idea what to do with the ball once he gets to the edge of the opponents box.

      Yea he's fantastic at bringing the ball out and through midfield but always looks a CB once he gets to the edge of the box.

      I mean if he looked like a midfielder or forward when he hit the edge of the box he'd probably not be playing in defense ;D

      He can play midfield and was used occassionally as a DM in Germany.
