Liverpool defender Joel Matip showed his world class ability as he somehow got back to prevent a golden chance for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the weekend.
See the video below shared from LFC’s official Twitter account, with Matip showing great pace to deny what looked a huge opportunity for Aubameyang as he was put clean through on goal.

Unsurprisingly, loads of Reds fans are absolutely loving this from the Cameroonian, and some want him given a lifetime contract for his efforts.
Here’s some reaction from Liverpool fans on Twitter…
Announce Matip’s new contract for life.
