- Joe Gomez was said to have picked up a knee ligament injury while in England camp
- The defender will join the likes of Van Dijk and Alexander-Arnold on the sidelines
- This will obviously make Liverpool's defence more vulnerable
Liverpool defender Joe Gomez appears to have been ruled out of the remainder of the 2020-21 season after suffering a knee ligament injury.
The 23-year-old was on international duty with England when he damaged his anterior cruciate ligament during training with the Three Lions.
This will now put the Premier League champions under immense pressure having already lost Virgil van Dijk to a similar problem.
Jurgen Klopp's men have already conceded 16 goals in eight league matches so far this season and the absence of Gomez might force them to allow more.
And this will definitely dent their chances of retaining the title they won last season for the first time in about three decades.
SunSport however reports that the centre-back will be assessed in a bid to know the extent of the problem he suffered.
Van Dijk clashed with Jordan Pickford in last month's Merseyside derby at the Goodison Park and has already undergone surgery to repair the damage to the ligament he suffered.
Another major concern for the German-born tactician is Trent Alexander-Arnold who could be out for up to a month due to calf injury.
The Reds welcomed Joel Matip back into their fold but a Fabinho who has been a make-shift defender is among the injured stars. Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also unavailable for the Reds.
Klopp has had to bring in academy players like Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips to fill up space for the injured stars.
The former Borussia Dortmund man will be greatly disappointed with the latest development about Gomez.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Trent Alexander-Arnold will be out of action for at least four weeks due to the injury he sustained during Liverpool’s 1-1 clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Reports from England have it that the right-back will not be in action until early December as Liverpool’s injury list continues to pile up.
Recalled that Virgil van Dijk is likely to be out for the remainder of the season and consequently, the Reds will now be playing without two of their key defenders.
