Matip has reminded us all how valuable he was to the team when he first signed. The club went through a phase of defenders who lacked consistency before his arrival – those players who are ‘fine’ for four or five games before making a crucial defensive error. The 27-year-old is an integral part of this Liverpool team and the perfect partner alongside van Dijk. Matip can lead, but he’s happy to be led too. It’s a trait which this Liverpool team is built on; the team comes first, the individual second. The Reds don’t need any more big personalities or leaders. Henderson, Milner and Virgil lead by title, but when called upon, the whole team will step-up. A togetherness has been instilled at Anfield which isn’t matched by other clubs. Opposition players can’t impose themselves. Messi’s antics with Robertson were quickly quashed by Henderson, while Sokratis complaints towards Salah saw him chased down the tunnel.
Klopp’s team are a testament to the meaning of the ‘This is Anfield’ sign. “This is to remind our lads who they’re playing for, and to remind the opposition who they’re playing against.” Bill Shankly Forget ideas of signing another centre-half like de Ligt. There’s no reason to unsettle a well-balanced squad which also includes a player of similar potential in Joe Gomez. Defensive depth at centre-half is now an issue of Liverpool’s past.

Remember when Sokratis thought he was hard, tryna bully Salah then Van Dijk had him running to the away dressing room. Looool that’s their warrior!— 🇨🇭 (@BallerShaqiri) March 7, 2019
