Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on the win at Leicetser, and they’re all absolutely stunned by the form of Joe Gomez.
For once, Virgil van Dijk had a slightly below par performance in Liverpool’s 2-1 win at the King Power stadium, but Gomez was on hand to bail his partner out.
The young Englishman has slotted in perfectly alongside van Dijk in the absence of the injured Dejan Lovren, and it’s now hard to envisage Lovren getting his spot back.
Gomez made one tackle and three interceptions against the Foxes, and one absolutely incredible last ditch block to deny James Maddison.

The 21 year-old started his spell at Liverpool as a left back under Brendan Rodgers, and has developed his skills on the right flank since Jürgen Klopp arrived.
He is now getting his chance in the middle, and it’s looking like a stroke of genius from Klopp.
Fans are delighted with this performance on Saturday, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Joe Gomez was an absolute monster that half. Need to watch it back to pay attention to him tactically but in terms of impact defensively, he was outstanding making the most important pressure on the ball in our XI and most important defensive actions in our XI. pic.twitter.com/z6ttvKrL4q

We actually defended pretty well there. They only had one proper chance, bar the one when our goalie decided to make things a bit interesting. Joe Gomez was outstanding.

It’s fair to say Joe Gomez has took the CB spot trusted by Klopp with impressive performances, in his first 4 PL games. Deserves his spot with his excellent reading of the game and concentration. The real test for him is in two weeks. pic.twitter.com/3VjahP4zIT

Joe Gomez was the best player on the pitch today. Playing like a seasoned Italian centre-half at the age of just 21. Not just the future, but also the present. His intelligence and ability to read the opposition is immense. A top three performing CB in the PL so far this season.

Joe Gomez was IMMENSE today. Controlled every area and opponent with ease, calm and quality. Made a few crucial last ditch efforts, with the one on Maddison in the beginning of 2nd standing out. Carried Van Dijk, believe it or not. His best game in a LFC shirt today, no doubt
