Liverpool lose Joe Gomez for six weeks

Can you turn a decent player into an global?

"Liverpool can confirm Joe Gomez sustained a fracture to the lower left leg during the 3-1 win at Burnley on Wednesday night", a statement on the club's website said.

Burnley's Sean Dyche admitted he has been left "confused" by Jurgen Klopp's criticism of the tackling in last night's Premier League clash at Turf Moor.

"Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit".

Of course, Liverpool won their games against Bournemouth comfortably last season, 4-0 and 3-0, but while they haven't been playing at their brilliant best yet this season they've been able to win games they struggled in last season, such as the midweek trip to Burnley. "I couldn't make out what part of that was right and wrong", Dyche told the media. The only one that was questionable was Bardo's [Phil Bardsley].

Klopp crticised the match referee Stuart Atwell, saying: "'I said to the referee after the first sliding tackle (made) over six or seven yards, when he got the ball and everyone liked it: "'Please, tell them they can not do that'".

He said: "He [Klopp] didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating when he went down, nothing near him, and he got a free-kick for it".

"I think Ben Mee's was a fantastic tackle and I imagine that a player, who seems to me an honest player, like Gomes, I think he realised that".

That is the view of Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson, who says that the Reds MUST win their game with Bournemouth (12.30) to put the pressure on City. "We sent him home". "I didn't see anything in it other than players trying to win a football match, and showing the will, courage and demand to try to win a football match against one of the top sides in the country".
