Joel Matip: The power of Anfield can help decide a game

Joel Matip has called on Liverpool to harness ‘the power of Anfield’ as they strive to secure Champions League qualification in the closing weeks of the season.

Three of the Reds’ final five games of the Premier League campaign are on home soil, with the first of those fixtures coming against Crystal Palace this afternoon.

Matip is looking forward to returning to L4 after back-to-back away wins over Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, with the centre-back explaining just how crucial the home fans’ backing can be.

“Playing at Anfield, we have the supporters around us, giving us help and strength, and we’ll do our best to use this, to use the power of Anfield,” the centre-back told

“They [the fans] push you, in every game, every pass, every set-piece. You see them surrounding you, you hear them. They give you that extra ‘plus’ that can maybe decide a game.”

Jürgen Klopp has praised his team for the manner of their victories over Stoke and West Brom, with the boss labelling last week’s hard-fought 1-0 triumph at The Hawthorns ‘adult football’ during his pre-Palace press conference on Thursday.
