Liverpool fans unimpressed with Joe Gomez’s defending in 4-1 win over Norwich

Despite securing a 4-1 win on the opening day of the Premier League season, all was not completely rosy in the Liverpool garden.

The Reds raced off to a four-goal lead by half-time, but there were moments where they looked defensively shaky. Their problems at the back eventually led to Norwich striker Teemu Pukki grabbing a consolation in the second-half, and one man who Liverpool fans weren’t happy with was Joe Gomez.

The England international had a difficult night at the back alongside Virgil van Dijk, and seemed to struggle with the off-the-ball movement of Pukki.

After seeing Gomez’s problems on Friday night, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns about the defender’s performance.

Many blasted the 22-year-old’s defensive discipline and even suggested he could go on to “ruin” the club’s season if he continued to perform like that.

Indeed, some urged Jurgen Klopp to start Joel Matip ahead of Gomez for the side’s next clash, and insisted the Cameroon international is a far better centre-back option.
