Liverpool fans want Gomez to nail down CB spot

Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on Joe Gomez’s performance on Sunday, and they’re calling for the youngster to nail down the place alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool fans were raging this weekend when Dejan Lovren revealed that he has kept an on-going injury under the radar.

The Croatian defender admitted to playing through the pain at the World Cup, and said that the club was “not happy” with the injury.

With the feisty World Cup finalist now facing a spell on the sidelines, could it finally be the time for Gomez to cement his place as a starting centre back?

The 21 year-old got the nod against West Ham as both Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan were injured, and he looked calm and composed alongside the colossal van Dijk.

Gomez has struggled with injuries and been forced to fill in at full back since moving to Anfield, but he boasted a 92 per cent pass success rate in the 4-0 win, making three tackles and four clearances.

Fans are convinced it may finally be his time to shine, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
