A 26-year-old Liverpool player may have been injured for last night’s game, according to Jurgen Klopp.

According to Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool had a minor injury concern before to yesterday night’s victory over Leicester City.


At Anfield, the Reds once again overcame a deficit to triumph 3-1. The fourth time in a row they have won by the same margin, and the third time they have to come from behind to do so.

But even with the sluggish start, Klopp could still see a lot of advantages. The Liverpool manager listed them off in his post-game press conference last night, giving Dominik Szoboszlai, the game-winning player, a special note.

But sadly, there was a piece of the boss’s news that was a little unsettling. Jurgen acknowledged that his choice to employ Curtis Jones at right-back was somewhat spur of the moment. It seems that Joe Gomez has been knocked.


The German said, “We couldn’t play Stefan [Bajcetic] long, we had to be careful with him.


Joey [Gomez] wasn’t fine today, but he’ll be fine over the weekend. It’s too early for Trent [Alexander-Arnold]. Curtis was constantly on my thoughts as a potential solution there as I tried to find answers.


Although it is encouraging that the 26-year-old appears to be returning for the Sunday match against Tottenham, there is still some cause for concern.


Gomez will not play against Leicester.

It appears that the decision to omit Gomez from the squad last night was made purely out of caution. However, there might be some reason for concern given the injury history of the England international.


Hopefully not, as Gomez has come out of the gate this season acting like a man on a mission.


The former Charlton teenager has so far filled in at both center-back and right-back, and has appeared at his best.



Although it’s still early, Gomez may find himself back in the England lineup soon if he can maintain this kind of performance. However, whether or not that occurs will be mainly determined by how much he plays for Liverpool.


Alexander-Arnold is anticipated to return for Sunday’s trip to London, therefore Gomez is likely to lose his right-back responsibilities soon. His physical condition may now determine whether he starts at center back.

Ibrahima Konate’s appearance at the back last night caught some people off guard, and it might mean that Gomez or Joel Matip are getting ready for Sunday.


It would be fantastic to see Liverpool’s No. 2 given another chance if he gets back in time. Joe, get well soon.
