The Barclays Premier League can certainly be unpredictable, from surprise match wins to major summer signings and new talents lighting up the stage, this league never ceases to thrill or upset.

This time, it's Liverpool who have something to be thrilled about and it lies in the shape of Joe Gomez.

Few people would have seen the breakthrough of an 18 year-old summer signing at such a big club come so early, in-fact, many expected Gomez to immediately join another club on loan after he joined Liverpool but the young man has stayed.

Under the guidance of manager Brendan Rodgers, Gomez has played all three of Liverpool's opening games and has looked undaunted.

This week, the 18-year old has been singled out for praise by pundits and ex-Liverpool players who are impressed by the young man's progress.

"I must admit I didn't know too much about him before he came to the club", former Liverpool left-back John Arne Riise told Sky Sports this week. "But I'm very, very impressed by Joe Gomez. Seriously impressed."

It is not only Gomez' individual performances that have caught the eye in his three games for Liverpool but his team work displays have also been given a thumbs-up by Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

"What I like is the narrowness of the back four", Carragher said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football. "Gomez is not getting detached and leaving Lovren isolated. We've seen that when Lovren does get isolated he is exposed."

Another man who is clearly impressed by Gomez is England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate, the Englishman has involved the Liverpool ace in his plans for the Young Lions' upcoming fixtures and should Gomez continue in this good form for club and country, another English manager, Roy Hodgson will be keeping a keen eye on him.

Liverpool have a great player in their hands and the Reds will surely be looking to find the success that keeps players like Gomez at the club for many years to come. It's only been three games but the future looks bright for a young Joe Gomez.
