Send him on loan, Not good enough – Liverpool fans slaughter 6ft 2 player after shocker v Stoke
Liverpool struggled to a point against a resilient – and lucky – Stoke side in the Saturday lunchtime Premier League clash, and fans were furious with a very rusty Joe Gomez in defence.
Stoke fans must have seen their lives flash in front of their eyes in the first few minutes of the game as Mohamed Salah was put through on goal with just Jack Butland to beat.
He went for a trademark dink but misjudged it and put it wide which stunned the Anfield crowd into a silence of disbelief.
He had more chances and Danny Ings put the ball in the net, but it was disallowed for offside and the two sides went in at 0-0.
It was a scoreline that flattered Stoke but they performed better and held out for a crucial point in the second half.
Meanwhile, fans were not happy with Joe Gomez, despite the 20-year-old just having got back from injury – the kindest comment was that he “rusty as hell” but others didn’t hold back, with another saying he should be shipped out on loan.

Gomez looks rusty as hell back there. Missing our usual fullback combo so far.

Honestly Gomez is a liability

Gomez’ passing can kill the best atmosphere

Some players do not deserve to wear the Liverpool logo … Alberto Mourinho, Gomez, Danny Angs and Clavan so it's better to get rid of them

Please sell moreno and klavan next season @LFC Send gomez and Danny ings on loan to Arsenal or Wolfsburg. They're not good enough to play for Liverpool

Not sure what system were playing or where players are supposed to be doing. Most having a mare especially Gomez

Don't know what's happened to Gomez. Can't even play a simple pass now.

Ings and Gomez are awful. Trent’s injured and so is Henderson. If we have to play Gomez RB against Roma we aren’t reaching the final

Gomez can’t even pass the ball to his own teammate.
