Cameroon and Liverpool defender Joel Matip is set to miss the remainder of the 2017/18 English Premier League season through injury.
Reports suggest that the centre-could be sidelined for the rest of the season with the Reds saying he is likely to require an operation on a thigh injury.
The 26-year-old also suffered injury during the victory at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace, but played the whole game.
A Reds statement said the operation is likely to end Matip's involvement in the remainder of the current campaign.
The Germany-born, former Indomitable Lions defender has made 25 league appearances this season whilst scoring once.
