Liverpool managed to keep the pressure on Manchester City in their last Premier League outing as they secured all three points against Burnley.
The Reds will be desperate to secure an elusive piece of silverware under Jurgen Klopp in the current campaign, with a successful January transfer window helping their cause.
However, the Merseyside club suffered a huge blow on the injury front recently, as according to Sun Sport, Joe Gomez will miss the festive fixtures after suffering a leg fracture.
Joe Gomez has suffered a fractured leg, and is set to miss Liverpool‘s festive fixtures.
The central defender was on the end of a heavy challenge from Ben Mee at Turf Moor, which proved to be damaging.
He went for scans on the injury today and results are understood to have shown a fracture to his lower left leg.
Gomez is now expected to be on the sidelines for a month to six weeks at least.
Sadly, he is certain to miss the crunch Champions League clash with Napoli and the clash with Manchester United later this month, so Liverpool may find it difficult to keep up with Manchester City.
Manchester City could start to run away with things once again.
Joe Gomez has been one of the standout performers for Liverpool in the current campaign, and has established himself as an England regular under Gareth Southgate.
The injury comes as a huge blow for the Reds as he has been so influential at the heart of the defence and would have played a massive part in their festive fixtures.
