The 28-year-old was injured in the newly-crowned champions' goalless draw at Everton on 21 June, their first match after the Premier League resumption.

Matip was absent as the Reds thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 last week and he is now set to miss their remaining seven games.

Matip told the club's website, Liverpoolfc.com: "This season I will not be back on the pitch but, for next season, I hope I'm going to be - quite early - a direct help for the team."

Liverpool face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday in their first match since the title was secured.
