Steve McClaren told Sky Sports that Joe Gomez is the epitome of a modern centre back and recalled watching him play for Charlton Athletic.

With Champions League football returning next weekend, domestic cup competitions and the FIFA Club World Cup on the horizon, Gomez will get a chance soon.

For Klopp, it’s such a blessing to have Gomez and then Dejan Lovren as his backup central defenders with Matip and Virgil van Dijk currently the first choice partnership at the back.

“I remember seeing him at Charlton when he was playing right-back.

And he would be able to recover if he were to get exposed.” While Joel Matip is currently ahead of him in the pecking order, there is no doubt that Gomez is one of the best defenders in the Premier League even if he’s not quite been the same since breaking his leg.

Gomez is quick and he is intelligent.

He could defend.
