Gary Lineker has lavished praise on Joe Gomez following his strong display for Liverpool FC in their 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Gomez has been a solid performer for the Reds so far this season after having broken into the first team at Liverpool FC last term.

The England international was once again in solid form for Jurgen Klopp’s men on Saturday as he helped the Reds to notch up a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium and maintain their 100 per cent start to the new season.

Gomez will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Anfield this season and he has earned plenty of new admirers since forcing his way into the first team at Anfield.

And Lineker was quick to take to social media to salute Gomez’s performance after Liverpool FC’s victory over the Foxes at the weekend.

Lineker simply wrote on Twitter: “Joe Gomez is going to be a helluva player.”

Liverpool FC are currently top of the Premier League table and they will look to continue their fine start to the new campaign when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley after the international break.

The Reds finished fourth and without a trophy under Klopp last term.
