Liverpool fans react on Twitter as 19-year-old axed from squad v Watford

By Dominic Toner

Joe Gomez has been dropped from the squad against Watford – and the Liverpool fans were not happy with the decision on Twitter.

The 19-year-old was not named in the matchday Reds squad for Monday night’s Premier League clash away to Watford, despite being involved in the 18-man set-up for the previous game away to Crystal Palace.

He has made just three senior appearances this campaign following his comeback from a long-term injury, but has been unable to force his way back into the first team.

Jurgen Klopp has decided to name an unchanged starting line-up, but has been able to bring Adam Lallana back to the bench.

Liverpool fans voiced their anger that young defender Gomez was omitted from the squad against Watford.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Gomez has been unable to force his way into Liverpool’s starting line-up, despite serious question marks arising over the quality of their defence.

Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan, Lucas and Joel Matip have been the senior options at centre-back this campaign, but Klopp’s side have been unable to be defensively solid.

Gomez enjoyed a fantastic start when he moved to Anfield from Charlton, but his injury has seen him slip right down the pecking order.
