Danny Murphy raves about Joe Gomez at Liverpool FC
Danny Murphy admits that he's been hugely impressed by Joe Gomez at Liverpool FC
Danny Murphy has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by Joe Gomez’s development at Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp.
Gomez earned plenty of praise for his performances last season as he managed to hold down a spot in the first team under Klopp and helped the Reds to finish fourth in the Premier League table.
He also played a role in helping the Merseyside outfit to reach the Champions League final last term, before they were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old has played the full 90 minutes in both of Liverpool FC’s opening Premier League games this season as they notched up victories over both West Ham United and Crystal Palace.
And former Liverpool FC star Murphy has admitted that he is a big fan of the defender following his impressive displays for the Reds recently.
Speaking in an interview with bwin, Murphy said: “I’m very impressed with Joe Gomez and I think he will become a good central defender.
“I thought he got isolated at full-back and though he’s quicker and stronger, he doesn’t have [Trent] Alexander-Arnold’s technical ability.”
Liverpool FC will be aiming to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League on Saturday evening when they host Brighton and Hove Albion in the top flight at Anfield.
The Reds are currently second in the table and behind leaders Manchester City as they bid to challenge for the title this term.
