Joel Matip is hoping to prove his fitness for Liverpool's Premier League clash with Manchester United this weekend but remains a major doubt.

With regular centre-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both long-term absentees, Jurgen Klopp has rotated inexperienced defenders and midfielders at the heart of his defence in recent weeks after Matip's injury.

He would hope to have the Cameroon international available for the clash with United, who leapfrogged Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table on Tuesday night by beating Burnley.

Rushing Matip back may prove unwise given the large volume of fixtures coming up and Klopp may decide against risking him.

Fabinho will start at centre-half but it remains to be seen who will join him in the Liverpool defence.

Jordan Henderson played the role in Liverpool's last Premier League match, a 1-0 defeat to Southampton, but may be recalled to midfield.

Nat Phillips and 19-year-old Rhys Williams have both been given opportunities in the last few weeks but this would be the biggest game of their young careers.
