Liverpool fans laud performance of Joe Gomez during Arsenal win

The England defender was impressive throughout as Liverpool continued their dominance.

Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield last night as the Reds kept up their perfect start to their Premier League title defence.

Jurgen Klopp’s team fell behind thanks to an Alexandre Lacazette goal, but Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson ensured they went in at half-time in the lead.

Liverpool had to wait until right at the death to seal their victory, with new signing Diogo Jota wrapping up the win with his first Reds goal.

Despite a solid performance going forward, it was one of the defenders who really caught the eye during last night’s game.

Joe Gomez returned to the team after missing the win over Chelsea with a minor muscle injury.

The 23-year-old struck up a solid partnership with Virgil van Dijk last season and once again last night he was brilliant in defence.

Gomez signed a bumper £75,000-a-week contract back in 2018 and looks set for a bright future in the red of Liverpool.

Last night he caught the eye of supporters on Twitter and after replacing Fabinho in the back four, they took to social media to rave about his performance.

Having the Brazilian back in midfield was big in stifling Arsenal’s creative sparks and Gomez proved a standout performer at the back.

Here is a selection of Tweets from Liverpool supporters regarding Joe Gomez.
