Joel Matip has declared himself available for Sunday's trip to Manchester United.

The centre-back missed Liverpool’s final two games before the international break as a result of a knock he picked up at Sheffield United last month.

But Matip returned to training at Melwood this week and is set to be ready if required at Old Trafford this weekend.

“I’m back in training and hopefully I will stay fit,” he told on Thursday. “I’m back in training and I feel good. Of course, if I’m needed, I will be there.

“Injuries [happen] to a player. Now I’m back, I hope I stay fit and I can focus on the positives.”
