Joe Gomez: Liverpool defender out for up to six weeks with a fractured leg

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez could be out for six weeks after fracturing his left leg during Wednesday's victory over Burnley.

The 21-year-old England international was taken off after 23 minutes following a challenge with Clarets captain Ben Mee.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp complained about Burnley's tackling during the 3-1 Premier League win at Anfield.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said it was a "fantastic tackle" by Mee.

A Liverpool statement on Thursday said "initial indications" were that Gomez would be out for up to six weeks, "though this is dependent on how his treatment and rehabilitation programmes progress".

Gomez has played in 13 of Liverpool's 15 league games this season.

He made his England debut last year and has won six caps, but missed this year's World Cup in Russia because of an ankle injury.

That's extra shit. He's been one of the highlights of our season so far. Crazy that someone so young has me thinking that Lovren and Matip are big steps down.

Anyone think we could see Fabinho at RB a few times while Gomez is out? Trent can't and won't play every game in this run

Bad news but Klopp comes across a bit of a ponce saying 'it's not a foul but shouldn't be allowed...'

You come across as a bit of a ponce following Klopps comments all over the internet you fucking wet wipe xD

Wow Clyne is perpetually injured. Yeah, I imagine that Fabinho will have to fill in at right back while Gomez is out.

When it happened I was hoping it was nothing serious and now this. Good news is that he's young so he should recuperate quick.

I expected worse after seeing him come off last night, Bit of a blow for us but Lovren has been very good so far this season so not to worried. Trent will probably have to play a lot of games in his absence.

Klopp is such a tosser honestly. Can't stand him.

Really like Joe Gomez though, proper talent. Love a quick centre back, but has more than just pace too. For a young centre back/right back seems to have decent positional sense, will only get better. Hope it's a quick recovery

Jurgen Klopp escalates Sean Dyche row as Liverpool boss takes aim at Burnley chief

David Anderson        2 hrs ago

 

Jurgen Klopp has hit back at Sean Dyche in their war of words, insisting Daniel Sturridge is “not a cheat”.

Burnley boss Dyche responded to Klopp’s complaints about Burnley’s tackling during Liverpool’s win on Wednesday by accusing Sturridge of diving.

He claims Klopp conveniently overlooked Sturridge’s antics to focus on Burnley’s challenges, which he insists were fair.

This has annoyed Klopp, who was upset by Ben Mee’s challenge which has sidelined Joe Gomez for six weeks with a fractured tibia, and he claims Sturridge is no cheat.

The Liverpool boss claims Dyche has also forgotten Phil Bardsley’s nasty challenge on Alberto Moreno. 

“Daniel Sturridge is not a cheat,” said Klopp. “We all have our own aims. What can I say?

“After that game, he talked about one situation where a player went down without contact.

“I don’t know how the referee judged it, but it’s a normal situation, which can happen. Sometimes a striker expects a tackle and you try to avoid that by jumping. That’s how it is.

“He (Dyche) brought up another subject, but I’m not sure if he mentioned the challenge of Bardsley on Moreno.

“I said what I had to say about that after the game. Yeah, different opinions are allowed.”

Unlike the overrated TAA, I rate Gomez very high. Completely agree with Nicholas and TAD, kloppy the clown is such a tosser. The act was amusing at first but it's getting old and annoying.

I can usually tolerate Klopp but his comments about the tackle are laughable. That was a proper football tackle from Mee. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Yes it was unfortunate that Gomez got injured, but it's comments like that which are a catalyst for taking tackles like that out of the game. 

When it comes to stuff like this, you have to put the shoe on the other foot and think about how you'd react i.e. if Henderson made that tackle, got the ball and unfortunately injured the player, would Klopp be so critical? Would any manager be so critical if it was their own player making the tackle, as opposed to their player getting injured? I think not.

What, tackles that result in a broken leg? What a tragedy that would be

Good timing for all of this too. Speedy recoveries are always good.

Still think Klopp will play him at RB with Lovren and Dijk in the centre against big teams, which is a shame. He is the best CB partner to VVD.
