A few years ago, it looked as though Joe Gomez’s career was in jeopardy due to serious injury problems.
The Liverpool defender had to work his way back into first-team contention and he now finds himself as one of Jurgen Klopp’s important players.
At the start of the season, the 21-year-old was selected to partner Virgil van Dijk at the back, and instantly he made an impact.
Gomez has looked solid marshalling the defence with Van Dijk, but interestingly in Liverpool’s last two games he has been farmed out to right-back.
Before the 2018-19 campaign got underway, the England international’s main position was at full-back, and he reverted back to that in games against Manchester City and Huddersfield Town.
The decision to move Gomez was made after Dejan Lovren returned to the centre of defence following a spell out with injury.

It is unclear when or if Klopp will partner Van Dijk and Gomez again, but the results of our poll suggest that most Liverpool fans think that the youngster is better suited centrally.
