Liverpool defender Joe Gomez poses with Chelsea starlet after Wednesday's 1-1 draw at Anfield
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.
Liverpool will face Sevilla in the Europa League final next week.
