Joe Gomez was pleased to catch up with his friend Kasey Palmer on Wednesday night after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield.

The Liverpool full-back hasn’t featured for the Merseyside outfit under Jurgen Klopp after he reptured his ankle ligaments during England Under-21 duty.

Gomez had initially made a bright start to his Liverpool career and managed to keep Alberto Moreno out of Brendan Rodgers’s side before his season-ending injury.

However, the former Charlton Athletic defender was in good spirits as he posed for a photo with Chelsea starlet Palmer following Wednesday’s stalemate.

Gomez posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote: “Been my brother since I can remember #KP38❤️”

The 20-year-old move to Liverpool in a £5m deal from Charlton last summer under Klopp’s predecessor Rodgers.

And Gomez thanks the Reds fans for all their support in what has been a difficult season for the England Under-21 defender.

Thank you for your support over the season #lfc👍❤️
