Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is facing a six-week spell on the sidelines after injuring his left leg during the 3-1 victory over Burnley on Wednesday night.

Gomez left the field on a stretcher in the first half after being the recipient of a hard challenge from Burnley defender Phil Bardsley.

The injury comes as a major blow to Liverpool 's festive plans, with a number of Premier League fixtures to come, as well as a pivotal Champions League clash with Napoli on Wedneday evening.

Gomez has been a key part of Liverpool's defensive revival this season, helping the Reds keep nine Premier League clean sheets in 14 games, conceding just five goals.

Jurgen Klopp admitted after the game that Gomez had an ankle injury and that it was "it is probably not only a little bit".

And in an update issued by today, the club confirmed that Gomez has sustained a fracture to his lower left leg.

Gomez will be reassessed by Liverpool's medical staff but he looks set to miss the entire Christmas period, as well as most of January.
