Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on England’s win over Croatia, and they’re delighted with the form of Joe Gomez.
England continued their incredible transformation under Gareth Southgate this weekend, coming from behind to beat Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.
A big part of Southgate’s revolution has been playing the ball out from the back, and the partnership of Gomez and John Stones is perfect for this.

Manchester City’s young star has built his entire reputation around being a ball-playing defender, which is absolutely perfect for Pep Guardiola’s system.
Gomez isn’t too bad with the ball at his feet either though, and Reds’ fans are starting a bit of a rivalry between the pair.
Stones struggled when Jurgen Klopp’s side blitzed the Champions at Anfield last season, and plenty of fans are bashing Stones for being too-mistake prone, while also praising Gomez.
Gomes has been a long-term project for Klopp, and judging from the Twitter reactions down below it’s a project that’s working…
John Stones is the biggest system player, take him away from Pep and he’s a mistake prone donkey

Gomez will be a better defender than stones as he has no weakness to his game. Stones is a wet wipe as we’ve all seen, even if he is a bit better on the ball

Joe Gomez at the moment is as good as de Ligt. Just because the majority doesn’t watch Eredivise regularly, de Ligt’s weaknesses remain hidden. Both have an amazing future ahead of them but if I had to choose between the two, I’d personally take Gomez.
