However, Matip returned to training on Tuesday and is now in contention to start this weekend's Premier League showdown with United at Old Trafford.

"I'm back in training and hopefully I will stay fit," he told the club's official website. "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."
