Gomez: It was a heart-in-mouth moment

With a hopeful Joe Gomez, Liverpool is hoping to take a major advance against Crystal Palace toward Premier League magnificence. Joe Gomez accepts that Liverpool’s battle with the Crystal Palace on Wednesday was sure after their Merseyside derby draws with Everton. With eight games to go, Liverpool is 20 points clear of Manchester City as they close in on their first title in a Premier League period.

Following the coronavirus lockout on Sunday, Liverpool attracted away 0-0 to rivals Everton in their first match back and invited Palace to Anfield next.

England ‘s international Gomez had to step in left-back when he came in for the harmed James Milner, who had already replaced Andy Robertson as a regular starter.

Gomez told the site of the club: “Unfortunately we didn’t get the three points however at the day’s end, it was a bit nearer. I think the familiarization [of Anfield and having played the primary game without fans] will help us in the following performance. This will be a tough game yet ideally, we can expand on it.”

Gomez made a crucial commitment by avoiding a Tom Davies shot onto the post as Everton launched a late whirlwind of attacks, yet he felt Liverpool was the better side as they prepared to face Palace.

He said: “It was a snapshot of heart-in-mouth, minutes like that I believe it’s simply impulsed, it could go either heading a couple of centimeters and it would have been an alternate result. They had many great chances yet we like to think we came out dominating the match. There are certainly positive points that we can take from it, it’s just about a structure on that now.”

Gomez added in his change of position: “It was peculiar. It wasn’t normal, and clearly, I’m no Robbo. Be that as it may, sometimes it’s part and parcel of the game you have to do all that you can to support the team and get your outcome. Everybody realizes that Robbo is our main man, however, I’ve learned to adapt as it were, and full-back is a position I’ve been playing, however mainly right.”

In his pre-match media gathering, Jurgen Klopp announced that Robertson was back in training, and subsequently in dispute to face Palace.
