Matip has a special reason to want to start against Leicester when the champions visit Anfield on Saturday.
He told Liverpool's website: "I've been waiting the whole pre-season to make my first steps at the stadium.
"I think Liverpool is famous for its stadium, for its atmosphere. It will be a great atmosphere and I'll be happy when I can play there.
"To hear 'You'll Never Walk Alone' for the first time at the stadium will be a special moment and I will enjoy it.
"At Dortmund I like [You'll Never Walk Alone] - you can compare them a little bit to Liverpool but it's not the same.
"Dortmund, sometimes they sing, but they're not really famous for this, Liverpool is famous for this song and the atmosphere at the stadium. It will be something else.
"It's a nice song and with the atmosphere, it will be good to hear."
