Liverpool not afraid of any team: Matip

Joel Matip feels they are capable of defeating any team in all competitions due to their deep vein of form.

The 30-year-old has been instrumental in the Reds’ undefeated start to the 2021-22 season.

Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip believes his side are capable of defeating any team given their current run of form across all competitions.

Matip, a vital member of Jurgen Klopp’s team this season, has appeared in eight of Liverpool’s ten matches.

The Reds sit second in the Premier League with 15 points from seven matches – one point behind champions Chelsea – and also top their Champions League group with six points from two games, ahead of Atletico Madrid, Porto, and AC Milan.

I believe we are in good position and do not need to fear any team, but we must play our best football,” Matip told the club’s website.

“It’s going to be a long and exciting season, and we have a really talented team.
If we play at our absolute best, we can defeat anyone.”

Matip joined the Reds in July 2016 from Schalke 04 and was rewarded for his defensive efforts with a contract extension in 2019 that would keep him at Anfield until at least June 2024.

The Cameroonian defender reflected on his time at the club and how the love of the supporters helped him develop into a better player.

“This is my sixth year at Liverpool, and looking back, it feels like it went by in the blink of an eye,” he concluded.

“My league debut against a tough Tottenham side was truly memorable.
Unfortunately, the game ended in a draw, but it was fantastic to experience the garment in a real game.It’s hardly the best recollection that the game ended in a draw, but everyone recalls their first game.

“I’ve been here five years and you’ve connected.
Even if you go through the city, you can sense this incredible club.
There are so many Liverpool supporters worldwide that you get a sense of the club’s size and how many people love it in their own unique way.
You simply experience a sense of being a part of something truly extraordinary.

“Being in this environment helps you grow, and it’s gone extremely well – quite rapidly – and I’m looking forward to the next few years here.”

Matip will not be representing Cameroon in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, but he will be preparing to assist Liverpool in extending their unbeaten run in the English Premier League when they go to Watford on October 16.
