Didn't realise he could sprint like that! Pretty pacy when he wants to be.

Thought he was brilliant in the second half, after a decent first half and although he likes taking shots on our goal... there wasn't much he could do with that own goal. He just needs games into him and a good spell without injury. He was aggressive last night, was great to see.

I do like the way he's progressive and pushes out, it's essential sometimes although his control is for shit & scares the life out of me. Go by one player and pass it Joel yeah great, not by 5!

Very good performance and tonight showed the aggression that makes a man of his size a difficult prospect to play against.

Agree, he might even have some suitors come the summer, hope he stays though, I like him and he ticks most boxes. He might even get better over the next two or three seasons.

Fair fucks to the lad. Scores an own goal, and could've faltered, but stood up to the occasion, and cracked on like nothing had happened.

I think this would depend on game time....there was something written on that some time ago

I've always had him ahead of Lovren but with his long list of injuries i've become fed up with him. Amazed he's lasted this long tbh and thankfully he has, now Lovren is nearing a comeback i wouldn't be surprised if he crocks again but until then...

This isn't a dig at Matip (he's proved to be a good player) but Virgil van Dijk makes any centre back partner look world class

The fact that it means no Lovren is brilliant.

Maybe but fuck it, I'm really enjoying Matip's forays upfield!

Vvd plus any one from three (matip, lovren or gomez) looks great.

But if virge was out then who could we really trust. Scary shit...

Throw Karius into the mix, and suddenly it's 2017

I thought the first leg against Bayern demonstrated that we could trust Matip and Fabinho?

Good point, forgot about fab painting over the cracks for us

Not that we want him anywhere else but in our midfield.
