Joe Gomez has joined the list of defensive worries for Liverpool FC following a serious injury on international duties.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have been short of options at the back as Virjil Van Dijk, Alexander Trent Arnold and Fabinho (defensive cover) were all lost to injuries.
Joe Gomez’s adds to the worries for the ‘Anfield Faithfuls’ when he got injured on Wednesday morning, during a training session with the national team.
He got injured when he twisted his knee during training with no other player near him. Joe Gomez will be spending time on the sidelines with other injured Liverpool defenders which makes Joel Matip as the only fit defender.
Although there were fears that his season is over, after assessment by specialist doctors on Wednesday, Gomez was given some hope.
Joe Gomez has had successful surgery to repair a tendon in his left knee and that he has no ligament damage.
Nevertheless, it is a huge blow to Jurgen Klopp, who has already lost his top defenders this season which might get the Liverpool to shop defenders in January.
