‘On fire’: Virgil van Dijk and Adrian blown away by Liverpool defender after West Ham win


Virgil van Dijk and Adrian praised Joe Gomez after he put on another strong showing during Liverpool’s 3-1 win over West Ham United on Sunday.

Not the first choice under Jurgen Klopp, but injuries have opened the door for Joe Gomez to start more games than he usually does, including at right-back for Trent Alexander-Arnold against the Hammers.

The 26-year-old took to Instagram to tell fans ‘back home with three points’ after yesterday’s game at Anfield.

That’s another win ticked off the list by Liverpool, who are sitting second in the Premier League table, with Tim Sherwood backing the team to challenge for the title.

If Manchester City carry down their current road, then it’s pretty obvious that they will walk away with yet another title.

But if they are to be stopped, then teams like Liverpool need luck on the injury front because their squad clearly isn’t as strong as the current Treble winners.

In the comments section of Gomez’ IG post, goalkeeper Adrian wrote: ‘On fire my English Cafu’, whilst Virgil van Dijk simply responded with fire emojis.

Strong start by Liverpool

Given that this is Liverpool 2.0, then the main aim of this season would have been to get back into the Champions League places after the struggles of the previous campaign.

But given that the Reds were the last team outside of Manchester City to win the title and the fact that they are currently sitting second, then the target should surely be increased.

Yes, Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have the squad depth to match Manchester City, but he has the firepower to.
