Former Premier League star, and sport analyst, Michael Owen has praised Joel Matip top form at Liverpool recently following his performances when the Reds knocked Porto out of the Champions League competition on Wednesday night.
Joel Matip has been on his top best for Jurgen Klopp’s side since Joe Gomez’s injury setback last year.
”He’s under pressure now, now Gomez is back fit,Owen said.
”You’d have to think it’s his position that Gomez could take.
”But Gomez not played many minutes just yet, so he’s got the shirt. Dejan Lovren apparently is not feeling well tonight.
”He’s been brilliant this season, Matip, because I didn’t expect it from him if I’m honest. I never really looked at him and thought he’s a Liverpool starter in the past.
”But he’s got the shirt and he’s not let it go,he added.
