The dawn of a new age - the Klopp age - has only just begun. One training session into his Liverpool tenure, after his face has been the forefront of British football news recently, it's all been fairly positive.

His reputation and achievements at Borussia Dortmund bring hope to the hearts of Reds supporters, and with the promise of a fresh young squad for the eccentric German to work his magic, there is belief that success will return to Anfield.

However, according to BBC Sport, following the international break, the stereotypical consequence of players jetting off to represent their nation has taken its toll on the Merseyside outfit.

England starlet Joe Gomez, 19, has been ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up a knee injury for the under-21s.

More specifically, the defender has ruptured his cruciate ligament following a reckless challenge from Kazakhstan's Ahmat Aimbetov just ten minutes from the final whistle - a sore one for the Reds, and indeed England, to take.

The versatile defender, who can play anywhere across the back four, was snapped up from Charlton Athletic in the summer transfer window and has surprised many with his consistent performances.

A hammer blow, then, given Liverpool's wish for an up-spring in form, whilst also adding the fact that Klopp will start his reign with an injury list containing some prestigious names.

Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke, Phillipe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and now Gomez are all unavailable to the German - to what consequence remains to be seen.

Given his rapid development in a Liverpool shirt, Gomez's injury could prove to be a blow for England, let alone that Liverpool's already-shakey defence now have even fewer names to call upon.
