Joel Matip

Liverpool defender Joel Matip is expected to miss Saturday’s Premier League match against West Ham United at Anfield because of sickness.

Thiago (hamstring) and Roberto Firmino (groin) are also out for David Moyes’ side’s visit, and Jurgen Klopp also mentioned that Naby Keita and Curtis Jones are both questionable in terms of fitness.

Keita missed the midweek FA Cup victory against Norwich City, while Jones was replaced at half-time due to thigh soreness.

“Strength in depth is important but we have some who aren’t available,” says Klopp.

“Pretty sure Thiago is not available. Curtis is not bad but good enough for tomorrow? We’ll have to see. Matip is ill, but not COVID. I don’t know yet about Naby.

“Bobby is looking good but not good enough for the weekend. The plan is that he will train again on Sunday.”

Ahead of this tie, here’s how things stand in the top six:
