Joe Gomez hands Liverpool potentially huge injury blow

Liverpool met Burnley at Turf Moor on Wednesday night, however, the three points they picked up may have come at a huge cost.

The Anfield outfit kept their title charge alive with a 3-1 win and remain just two points behind Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

However, according to a report by the Daily Mail, Joe Gomez was forced to leave the pitch in the first half after colliding with the advertising hoarding.

The England international had to leave the field via the use of a stretcher and appeared to have picked an ankle injury in the process.

Liverpool had gone behind in the match against Burnley when Jack Cork opened the scoring, however, James Milner and Roberto Firmino quickly restored normality for the Merseyside outfit, before Xherdan Shaqiri sealed all three points in stoppage time.

The Verdict:

Although the extent of the injury is not yet known, it will no doubt cause Jurgen Klopp and his side some huge concerns.

The £25.2million-rated enforcer, as per Transfermarkt, has been a key player for Liverpool and has formed a formidable partnership at the back with Virgil van Djik.

The 21-year-old’s performances have continued to impress senior figures at Anfield and it is believed a new contract could be in the pipeline.
