But since his return Gomez has moved up to fourth choice behind Van Dijk, Joel Matip and summer signing Ibrahima Konate, meaning he has been limited to just one Premier League start this term.

Jurgen Klopp admits he feels for Gomez, for whom the injury came at the wrong time.

“The one thing I can say too, there are more difficult things than being a squad player at the moment for Liverpool.

“It’s never nice for the players, I understand that 100%, but Joe really takes it professionally. He’s a young boy and everything will be fine in the future, but for now, for sure, it’s more difficult.
