Jamie Carragher thinks having to play Ragnar Klavan is one of Liverpool's problems
Matip was left out the side to face Bournemouth last night – after having trouble trying to tie his boot laces.
The centre-back had been suffering with a back problem meaning Ragnar Klavan started alongside Dejan Lovren.

But he was unable to help Liverpool hold on to the lead as Josh King’s late goal scraped a 2-2 draw.
