How Joe Gomez left Southampton as Liverpool await injury news ahead of Champions League final
Joe Gomez suffered an injury in Liverpool’s win at Southampton which moved them within a point of Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
Gomez was in a lot of discomfort when he suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury moments before the interval at St Mary's.
He did not come out for the second period and was replaced by Jordan Henderson.
According to The Athletic, Gomez left St Mary's ‘on crutches with his left foot in a protective boot’.
Liverpool welcome Wolves to Anfield on Sunday before they meet Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Paris on 28 May.
What’s been said
Speaking to reporters, Klopp was optimistic Gomez's issue isn't too serious.
The Reds boss said: “I hope we were lucky. Joe himself has pain but not too much.
“He got a real shock to the system - foot and a bit higher.
“But when he was sitting in the dressing room and I spoke to him, he was in a good mood.
“I think maybe we were lucky but we have to figure that out.”
