The 24-year-old has made a successful return from a long term injury but is yet to earn a place back in Jurgen Klopp’s first team.
Instead, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and summer arrival Ibrahima Konate have taken the majority of the game time as Gomez watches on.

Once the first-choice alongside Van Dijk, the lack of outings this season has come as somewhat of a surprise.
However, with Nat Phillips already likely to leave in January, Klopp would be desperate to keep Gomez.
