Liverpool star Joe Gomez carried off on stretcher after smashing into advertising hoarding
JOE GOMEZ has been forced off with an injury in Liverpool’s clash against Burnley at Turf Moor.
The England international collided with the advertising hoardings and was replaced by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 23rd minute.
The injury looks be to his ankle and will come as a massive blow to Jurgen Klopp ahead of the heavily congested festive schedule.
Gomez has been revelation for the Reds this season.
He has been instrumental in the line-up with Virgil Van Dijk -and has contributed significantly to their nine clean sheets this term.
Liverpool are hoping for a win against Burnley to keep the pressure on Man City.
Guardiola’s men won 2-1 against Watford last night to stretch the gap to five.
And the Reds have been on great league form recently – wining four of their last five matches.
Their last win came against bitter rivals Everton on Sunday – where Klopp was fined for his celebrations.
