Liverpool fans rave about ‘brilliant’ defender Joel Matip after Southampton display

Liverpool completed a comeback win against Southampton on Friday night – and many of the club’s supporters on Twitter were blown away by the quality of defender Joel Matip.

The Reds found themselves behind early from a Shane Long goal, but they fought back to claim a 3-1 victory.

Naby Keita equalised in the first-half for the Merseyside club, before Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson netted late goals.

Liverpool moved back to the top of the Premier League with their win and are two points above Manchester City after playing a game more.

A selection of Liverpool fans picked out Matip for his commanding display in defence and he’s becoming an important player recently.

The 27-year-old is an unsung hero that doesn’t usually get the credit that centre-back partner Virgil Van Dijk does, but is a trusted member of Klopp’s squad and proved his value against Southampton.

He showed some quality when in possession and also produced a stunning long-range pass in the build up to one of the goals.

Here are some Liverpool fans praising Matip:
