Liverpool fans react as Joe Gomez is snubbed by Gareth Southgate

Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold were both left on the bench on Friday night.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to miss out on a spot in England’s starting line-up again.

According to various news sources, including Sky Sports News, Tyrone Mings will be selected ahead of him. Mings is set for his England debut with Everton’s Michael Keane dropped after some poor performances.

Mings will partner Harry Maguire at the back. Gareth Southgate has decided to use the left-footed defender alongside Maguire instead of Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori or Gomez.

Liverpool starlet Gomez is not getting into the side because of his lack of first-team minutes this season. This is because Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip have been in imperious form at the back.

Gomez has played six times this season and has only featured twice in the league. But Liverpool fans are arguing his case for an England place. With Maguire and Keane both struggling, Gomez was surely a serious contender to start against Bulgaria tonight.

The 22-year-old has proven his quality for the Reds with some impressive displays last season. Here are some tweets from Liverpool fans after hearing Mings will play instead.
