Joe Gomez injury
In what was crushing news for Liverpool fans, Joe Gomez sustained a knee injury during an England training session.
The 23-year-old withdrew from the international squad and went on to have successful surgery yesterday to repair a tendon in his left knee.
The injury is likely to rule the centre-back out for a large part of the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
He joins fellow defenders Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander Arnold on the club’s injury list.
