Joel Matip ready to step up in the regular squad.

Liverpool has major injury concerns ahead of the weekend clash against Wolves.

Liverpool’s go-to centreback pairing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are long term absentees.

Joel Matip returned to the squad for the Champions League win against Ajax and will be available to play alongside Fabinho in the heart of defence.

The Cameroonian centre-back has started five Premier League and Champions League matches this campaign.

“You have to come back and you try to be back stronger, but of course you always need some time to get back on a good level,” Matip told the Liverpool Echo.

“I am feeling good now and I am looking forward to playing a lot of games.

“The fitness and medical departments always try to improve things. We are working on different things.

“Sometimes you don’t have that much influence on it, but we are working hard to keep every player as fit as possible. This includes me and I hope to be playing as much as possible and to stay fit.”
