      Kid has all the tools...will he be able to use the most important one (his brain) and bring it all together consistently?

      There is so much to like about him, but he has to make sure that he doesn't turn into the defensive version of Jordan Ibe.

      Think we need to actually start playing him as a CB, think that’s partly why he switches off sometimes, playing out of position as a youngster, not the easiest thing to do whilst trying to make your mark in the team.

      Good to see he’s cut out getting so many cheap yellows now, that used to really piss me off. Was a card magnet at first.

      Looks the real deal for me. I think he and TAA are long term certainties. I hope Clyne makes it back, he will fit in there too. I don't mind Robertson either. In fact one if Van Dyke turns out to be any good, and Keita is similarly as promising then, we have the makings of a very balanced squad with some real quality specialists. However, GK is still a problem.

      He has lots of time to prove himself. We have first team players who are not even the real deal but have been starting for more than four years. Relatively lots of time and chances.

      Looks good to but has to be more aware of who is around him, only young but coming on in leaps and bounds.

      If we're looking at getting CL football next season and we're in the last 16 of the competition this year, I think starting Gomez with VVD straight awy would be quite risky. Putting him in with VVD next season from the start would be my preferred option. I do think he will be a big star for us but let's get our priorities in order first. I know Lovren, Matip and Klaven are not world beaters but they are seasoned pros in thier position with experience so Gomez and VVD for next season is a big yes from me.

      I'm of the same opinion, leave him at full back (where he is play No very well) and take a look at the CB role in the summer.

      Klopp says he is out 3-4 weeks but that he expects Joe to play again this season (ankle ligament damage playing for England).

      Seems to have a real problem late on in matches suggesting he has a issue concentrating for 90mins.

      There again he was pretty poor defensively most of the game.

      What the f**k was he thinking with that back heel??
      He has cost us at least 3 games so far this season, even though he was on the bench or injured for a large part of it.

      Don’t think he was as bad as everyone else says but he looked rusty. Still wonder if his better position isn’t CB.

      Agreed. He was poor but it was forgivable given that he's just come back from injury AND he was for many people not that long ago the preferred right back for us ahead of TAA. He's had some really good games for us this season even if that wasn't one of them!

      Moreno by comparison was even worse - Gomez got his timings wrong but Moreno was just getting skinned left, right and centre, kicking clean air and his clearances were abysmal. Even Milner who has been faultless of late was having to come back and clear up mess that wasn't his or anyone else's doing. The freedom and ease with which Phillips played today was a damning indictment on Moreno.

      I really like Gomez, I think he's got huge potential and a natural talent to be a first teamer for years. He was off his game against WBA and cost us 2 points with the nonchalant and lazy attempt at flicking the ball to the opposition player, leading directly to the free kick from which they scored. That stage of game, you just control and put your laces through it.

      Put it down to lack of fitness and naivety...but if he makes too many of those errors, I'd come down hard on him if I was Klopp. We need focus and seriousness for 90 minutes of every game from every player.

      Had enough of this lad. I personally don't think he is good enough. Obviously my opinion, but would not be fussed if we get rid of.

      He's a calamity, He doesn't judge the ball properly, not quick enough and his passing is atrocious.

      Yep understood, knee injuries, blah, blah but he can't even hit a 20 yard simple pass. That has to be a basic requirement for a Player at this level.

      Get rid of him and Moreno and get some decent full back covers.

      He was trying to dribble round players too, in his own half. In the 2nd half he tried it, got tackled and Stoke came at us...luckily on that occasion he made amends and was the one who blocked the shot. Unnecessary risks though, especially when he must have known he wasn’t having a good game.

      I think he is good player but at the moment, his form dipped a lot and needs the Summer break to come faster because after his injury he looks tired and unfit.

      Time for Gomez to step it up. He has the opportunity to take the CB spot and make it his own now.

      Yep.

      Has to grab this opportunity.
