Liverpool fans are raving about one player from their 3-0 victory against Huddersfield

It has been an odd week for Liverpool following their 4-1 humiliation at the hands of Spurs last weekend.

The likes of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip have been criticised by nearly everyone for their inept defensive display and Jurgen Klopp was not a happy man.

Their mistakes simply cannot continue to happen if Liverpool are to have any chance of challenging for the Premier League title.

Against Huddersfield, the pressure was on the Reds to turn in a much better display, with Philippe Coutinho ruled out of the game.

In the first half, Liverpool were dreadful, failing to break down a determination Terriers defence.

However, in the second period, Klopp's side were far better, eventually earning a much-needed 3-0 victory.

Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum scored the goals to help ease the pain of Mohamed Salah missing a penalty.

The goal can be seen here.




Wijnaldum's goal was the pick of the bunch, with Liverpool missing a number of chances to increase their lead in the latter stages of the match.

There were a number of candidates for man of the match from the Liverpool camp, with Jordan Henderson instrumental in the middle of the park, completing 124 passes.

But, Liverpool fans were not praising an attacker or a midfielder, instead, they were raving about one defender; Joe Gomez.

In a week where their defence has been questioned by everyone, the young Englishman has maintained his reputation and was fantastic at right-back versus the Terriers.

Needless to say, Liverpool fans were tweeting their joy over the former Charlton man.


The kid certainly has a bright future.

With Nathaniel Clyne still to return and the impressive Trent Alexander-Arnold available to Klopp, it's safe to say that right-back is by far the strongest department in his defence.

A number of people were suggesting that Gomez should be tried at centre-half instead of Lovren, but it is clear his natural position is out wide.
