The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for some major changes over the coming weeks. The Reds have been so poor in the Premier League, and particularly in defence, they feel that it is vital that Jurgen Klopp drops a few players. One major dilemma that the German has, though, is a lack of quality depth. He has a few young players, of course, but none of them have played frequently over the last few years.
That doesn’t seem to be bothering fans, though, at least according to a recent poll run by our landlord. With changes needed in the Liverpool defence, our landlord quizzed fans on whether young Joe Gomez should replace Dejan Lovren in the immediate future. Lovren has, of course, really struggled this season, and whilst Gomez has had a decent amount of game time, it has mostly been on the flanks.
This is something that fans want to see change, though, with a whopping 96% of polled supporters calling for Gomez to replace the Croatian defender in central defence. It would certainly be a big change, not least because, in comparison, Gomez has far less experience – but at this point, it can’t get much worse for Liverpool defensively. They’ve been really poor, and Gomez could be the solution that Klopp needs.
