Liverpool: Fans unconvinced by Joe Gomez after Salzburg performance

Liverpool: Fans unconvinced by Joe Gomez after Salzburg performance - Liverpool

Liverpool secured an important Champions League victory on Wednesday, beating Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield.

Is Liverpool's defence starting to be a bit of a worry?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, despite the win, the Reds weren’t at their best on the night, allowing a 3-0 lead to slip as their Austrian opponents pulled it back to 3-3.

Mohamed Salah eventually scored to ensure Liverpool won the game 4-3, but there were still question marks about the side after the game, particularly defensively.

Joe Gomez started the game at centre-back in place of the injured Joel Matip, and with him being the new face in the backline, some Reds fans pointed to his inclusion as the reason why they conceded three goals.

Interestingly, though, the stats suggest that the former Charlton Athletic man actually outperformed Virgil van Dijk on the night. According to WhoScored, Gomez made six tackles, four interceptions and one clearance in the match and earned a rating of 7.60, significantly higher than Van Dijk’s 6.55.

However, despite the stats, some Liverpool supporters were left unconvinced by the England international and feel that he was at fault for a couple of the goals they shipped.

Many of them are hoping that Matip will be available for their Premier League fixture against Leicester City at the weekend.

Here is what some Reds fans had to say about Gomez’s performance against Salzburg on Twitter…
