Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Joe Gomez against KRC Genk at Anfield this evening.
Gomez was in action for Liverpool in their Champions League Group E game against KRC Genk at home.
The 22-year-old central defender started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as Jurgen Klopp’s side won 2-1.
Gomez did not have a good game at the back and looked far from a player who could be a long-term partner for Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the Liverpool defence.
According to WhoScored, Gomez had a pass accuracy of 86.1%, won eight headers, took 97 touches, attempted one dribble, and made one tackle, three interceptions and four clearances.
The win means that Liverpool are at the top of Champions League Group E with nine points from four matches.
Liverpool fans were not impressed with the display produced by Gomez against KRC Genk at Anfield and have criticised him on Twitter.

We need a new back up imo, lovren isn’t good enough and with Gomez no doubt he’s got talent but you never know what joe your going to get…— Jack (@JackLP__) November 5, 2019
Gomez is always out of position… don't rate him one bit at all— Decky LFC (@declanwhitaker) November 5, 2019
Gomez letting the ball bounce uno…— Adam (@AdxmLFC) November 5, 2019
Guy can never read the ball in the air man
Lovren > Gomez— Ryan Smith (@_RyanSmith95_) November 5, 2019
Wonder how Gomez would have been recognised if he didn’t get injured last season, I reckon he ends up somewhere on loan in the next 2 years— Jayden (@J_LFC11) November 5, 2019
#lfc somebody tell me what Keita has contributed , never looked like nicking ball or beating a man.Woeful positioning, either lazy or struggling for fitness. Jury still out and Gomez not good either.— winevaults (@winevaults1) November 5, 2019
