Liverpool defender Joel Matip hopes goals continue to flow

Liverpool defender Joel Matip is delighted the goals are flowing after victory over Arsenal.

Having registered one strike in each of his first three campaigns with the Reds, the No.32 beat that tally in the fifth match of 2019-20 with a firm header to break the deadlock against the Gunners at Anfield on Saturday.

Matip was on target in the FA Community Shield earlier this month, too, and he is eager to make a habit of contributing at the other end of the pitch.

“I hope it's the beginning of [more] goals," the centre-back told Sky Sports.

“I'm happy that I could score. [It was] a good cross and I hope next week maybe another one will be there."
