Liverpool lift after Matip injury scan

Liverpool defender Joel Matip has avoided serious injury following their Merseyside derby draw with Everton.

The Reds have lost Virgil van Dijk for several months as he requires surgery on the ACL injury he suffered early in the game.

And Matip, who only made his comeback from injury in the game, also picked up a knock.

A video did the rounds on social media allegedly showing Matip at Liverpool's local hospital after the game, where Van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara both underwent scans.

The Times have now reported the defender did also undergo a scan with no major issue detected.
