Liverpool midfielder James Milner has poked fun at teammate Joe Gomez on Twitter following one moment in the 3-2 win against West Ham United at Anfield on Monday night.

The former Leeds United and Manchester City man missed the clash against the Irons through injury, but he was quick to post on his personal social media account on Tuesday morning when the club shared a video of Sadio Mane’s late winning goal.
Indeed, the move started with Gomez – who is without a goal for the Merseyside outfit in 97 appearances – shooting from outside the penalty area with his left foot.
It then deflected into the path of the onrushing Trent Alexander-Arnold, who hooked the ball back across goal for Mane to finish.
Milner teased his English teammate on Twitter by saying it was “never in doubt” that the ball would end up in the net as he lined up the effort, with a side-looking eyes emoji accompanying it.
While Gomez will surely be desperate to open his Liverpool account sooner rather than later, he won’t have been too bothered on Monday as Jurgen Klopp’s men secured their 18th straight Premier League win against the Hammers.
