Liverpool have dealt with setback after setback this season. Jürgen Klopp has had to deal with a freak injury crisis which has completely derailed the Reds’ title defence. As we edge to the end of the season some players are edging back to fitness. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to footage of Joe Gomez in training.
Joe Gomez injury
Back in October we saw Virgil van Dijk rupture his ACL in the Merseyside Derby.
The Dutchman was ruled out for the season, placing a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of Joe Gomez.
We thought this was the Englishman’s time to shine, it was his cue to step up and lead the defence.
Then just a few weeks later, in England training, Joe Gomez suffered a season ending knee injury of his own.

Whilst running by himself the defender picked up a freak injury and he’s been sidelined ever since.
Joe Gomez injury recovery
The England defender was ruled out until next season.
We’ve seen precious little of the centre back since then with most recovery updates focused on Virgil van Dijk.
Perhaps the club is erring on the side of caution with Gomez due to this not being his first serious knee injury.
Perhaps he is finding his recovery harder for the same reason, all we can do is speculate.
This week the defender posted footage of him working in the gym and the video has fans hopeful, excited and impressed.
