Matip had started the Reds’ last three matches but is now set to sit out the whole festive programme, joining Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold in the treatment room.

He landed awkwardly following an aerial challenge as Liverpool secured a place in the last 16.
An update from the Reds said: “Matip was taken to hospital following the fixture and further assessment deemed an operation is required.

“Early indications suggest the centre-back is facing a spell of up to six weeks out of action, though that is dependent on how Matip responds to his treatment and rehabilitation programmes.”
