Injured Liverpool defender Joel Matip: We've learned from last season

Injured Liverpool defender Joel Matip says last season's title collapse is driving them on this season.

Cameroon international Matip was left heartbroken by Liverpool's failure to win the Premier League last season, having missed out by a point to Manchester City .

But he insists that he and his teammates have learned lessons from that near miss.

"You can learn from everything. Even if you fail. It was a hard time but we didn't do too badly last season and we'll try to improve," he said.

"We are in November, it's so early in the season. We just want to win the next game and we'll see.

"It's great to be in this position, we've worked really hard to be here but we cannot rest. There's no time to rest."
