Joe Gomez had a difficult start to his life at Anfield, as he was initially behind Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip in the pecking order. However, injuries suffered by the duo have been very crucial for Joe Gomez, who has started getting a run of action in the first team. He has formed a remarkable partnership with Virgil van Dijk. It has helped others one of the biggest problems faced by Liverpool – a legal defence. Even with a lot of advantage in the title race, Liverpool were only able to register two clean sheets in the games before Gomez was introduced.
Since the introduction of the youngster, they have registered seven clean sheets in the last eight matches. The only occasion on which Liverpool failed to keep a clean sheet outside these games was in the Club World Cup semi-final. The attractive displays from the youngster have made him a great potential for the fantasy team. The 22-year-old has not been a common pick among fantasy football players. However, now is the time to have a serious consideration of the 22-year-old since Liverpool are keeping clean sheets at an alarming rate. Liverpool have all been about destroying opposition with a fast attack, but they are now great even at the back.
