‘Take their hands off’ – Liverpool fans enter after Aston Villa transfer link
Joe Gomez made his first start in two months as Liverpool beat Leicester City to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals on Wednesday night.
He did so against a backdrop of speculation linking him to a move away from Anfield, with Aston Vill and Real Madrid both claiming to be admirers of the defender.
However, Liverpool fans who watched weren’t particularly impressed with the former England center-back as the Reds needed a late equalizer to draw 3-3 and a penalty shootout. to reach the last four.
Indeed this selection does not seem too concerned about the prospect of losing him.
@LFCNHS: Konate doesn’t get enough credit for his quality. He pretty much calmed the defense when he came in and eclipsed Gomez who hopefully can start from here.
@ Djh_1989: Gomez will come back well
@_littlelemming: Full time thoughts, Tyler Morton has been terrific in this first half, creating chances and being good defensively. Joe Gomez has shown everyone why he isn’t picked for the first team, and Minamino has shown he should be picked more for the senior squad. Excellent game anyway!
@lfc_jdr: Konate was SUPERB when he came in at halftime. He’s gonna be so, so good. Clearly above Gomez in pecking order now.
@ Deji500: Konate saved #lfc so many times in this game. What a beast. Looks like Gomez can only play with VVD
@tdrake: After this performance, not sure we will see much Joe Gomez the rest of this season
@manlykvic: Gomez is playing against us. I swear to you
@stewbucs: Obviously Gomez doesn’t want to leave for Madrid so he’s doing his best tonight to make sure they don’t want him ………..
@ eldrick62: Gomez thank you for your time but you are not the player you once were.
@CurtyCM: Can the real Joe Gomez stand up!
@dbrindle_: If Real Madrid offer us money for Gomez, rip his hand off. How Koumetio took off before him, I’ll never know. Everything he did was catastrophic except for a few heads. I’d rather have Nat Phillips
