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…
Joe Gomez is first choice CB alongside VVD. End transmission.

Joe Gomez was very solid along side Van Dijk today. Bullied Arnautovic all game

I think Joe needs to be given a run in that position it’s his future spot let’s have a kid learn from VVD. He was good today

Would like to see Gomez stay injury free & then keep that CB place alongside the Rolls Royce VVD

Joe Gomez proved he’s a more than capable option at centre-back today. Him and Van Dijk were brilliant

Excellent. Perfect young partner for Virgil to educate.

There’s a bit of nervousness to him today but we need to persist with him as might be better than Harry Maguire!
