MATIP TO MISS CHELSEA CLASH
Joel Matip will miss the clash against Chelsea due to an ankle injury, paving the way for a Klavan debut.
New Liverpool signing Ragnar Klavan will make his debut on Thursday against Chelsea, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Klavan will deputise for the injured Joel Matip, who is currently nursing an ankle injury sustained in Liverpool’s pre-season clash with Wigan Athletic earlier this month.
The Reds do not want to take any chances on the fitness of their other new centre-half signing, as they want him to be 100% fit for their mouth-watering opening day encounter with Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.
