On physio room it's saying that matips expected return date has been put back until January 8th and it says there's even "a slight doubt" about that. Coutinho has been moved out to the same expected return date and there is still a "major doubt" about this date. I knew coutunho wouldn't be match fit even if he did return for the city game but I'd assumed we'd have matip back. Does anyone know if these return dates are correct.

I expect both to feature after the break ie against UTD.

return dates are estimates mate i would think. its hard to get exact dates.

At least we are not rushing them back.

I`d rather we not rush them back so they will be fit and fresh for the Utd game so Matip can shut down Ibra and Couts can embarrass DDG again with that audacious chip.

I understand that both Matip and Couts will be out until at least the middle of January. So they will miss some very tough matches when we need them most.
This coupled with Mane being in Africa will provide a testing time for our squad. Having the spine of your best team out is a big miss.

We have already been without matip and couts for a while now so there won't be much adjustment there. Mane will be a miss but i expect sturridge to come in and hopefully ojo who are not chopped liver. So i think we will be fine. Players will come back and what do you do with those players you brought in for 30m pound who will be immediately displaced by returning players ala mane. And what do you do with the untapped potential youth players who have yet one more person blocking them from having the chances to realise their potential.
I understand peoples need for that new player fix i have had that fixation for a number years in my youth. I now realise in my old age that we need to plan and think longer term. So i don't think we need to spend to cover 4 games and upset the chemistry of the squad atm.
