Latest Update Regarding The Injury To Joe Gomez – Can He Play In the UCL Final?

Latest Liverpool News: According to the dependable Paul Joyce, Liverpool is optimistic that Joe Gomez will be able to play in the final of the UEFA Champions League against Real Madrid. Gomez had an injury scare during their game against Southampton.

In the Premier League match that took place on Tuesday at St. Mary’s, the Reds were victorious against Southampton by a score of 2-1. As a result of the victory, the distance between them and the team that is now in first place in the standings, Manchester City, has been cut to one point in advance of the season’s final game.

On Saturday, Liverpool played Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Liverpool made nine substitutions compared to the lineup that began that game. Alisson and Ibrahima Konate were the only players to keep their starting positions. In the 13th minute of the game, they found themselves behind against the Saints. But goals from Takumi Minamino and Joel Matip helped them take the victory.

Even though it was the Reds’ second-string team, they turned forth a very promising performance. On the other hand, one of the most significant drawbacks of the evening was the injury that Gomez, who had begun the game at right-back, sustained.

After suffering an injury in the closing minutes of the first half, the 24-year-old was taken out of the game and replaced by Jordan Henderson at the beginning of the second half. In recent years, Gomez has dealt with more than his fair share of injury issues. There was worry that he could have suffered yet another injury-related setback.

After that, the Champions League final will be held on May 28 in Paris. Liverpool will compete against Real Madrid. They already have the EFL Cup and the FA Cup for this season. They are hoping to add another trophy to their collection.
