Matip eager to develop Lovren partnership at Liverpool

Joel Matip is eager to develop his defensive partnership at Liverpool with Dejan Lovren.

The Merseyside fans have just as swiftly taken in the Cameroon international after a stellar league debut against Tottenham in which his defensive partner Dejan Lovren picked up man-of-the-match.

Matip told Liverpool's official website: "At the beginning, we played a lot of games together. Also when Ragnar [Klavan] came back, I have a good feeling with him.

"Dejan gives me cover all the time and I know I can trust him. It also needs some time so I know the way he will make and he knows the way I will make. It needs some time but it will get better."
