Liverpool youngster Joe Gomez could miss this weekend's Premier League clash against Tottenham after picking up an injury on international duty for England under-21s, reports the Mirror. 

The talented defender had to be replaced during the comfortable 3-0 victory over Kazakhstan after appearing to suffer a knock to his ankle. 

Despite only being 18-years-old, Gomez has been a key member of the Liverpool side so far this season and would have been desperate to feature at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

However, new Reds chief Jurgen Klopp may well have to travel to north London without the former Charlton man. 

One thing is for sure, under the guidance of the revered Klopp, Gomez should have the chance to prove his credentials over the coming years. 

Klopp chance

Let's be honest, Gomez may well have been disappointed with the axing of former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers. The Northern Irishman was the man to hand the 18-year-old his first chance to shine at the highest level, but there's no reason why he won't be able to excel with Klopp in charge. 

It's likely that the ex-Dortmund man will show faith in the Reds' gifted young players and Gomez fits comfortably into that category. The Kop will now be hoping that the defender won't be out of action for a sustained period. 

Will Gomez become a top player under the guidance of Klopp? Have your say below!
