Only Salah Virgil Alisson ahead of him.

I love Joe Gomes, I think he's a great player and, a great lad and has been hugely valuable to us this season however I respectfully disagree with your opinion.

Of those, only Virg and Gomez have been ever present.

I don't know what this means to any POTY shout, but Gomez has 12 starts (and 10 subs) in the league. Alisson has 21, Salah, Szob & Mac have 20, Trent 19, Nunez 16 and Jota 13.

I would love to hear the argument of Szoboszlai having a better season than Gomez for this team..

I have never been so happy to be wrong about a footballer. Genuinely thought his time had been and gone with all the injury problems and that a fresh start was best for all parties. Should never doubt Klopp's judgement.

He's going to start up front next. The lad seems to be willing to play anywhere if it means helping out the team. James Milner Part 2

While its true Dominic started off really well he hasn't kept the standard up to the beginning which is why I would not have him in front of Joe Gomez. It's not unusual for a new player and I think we'll see his true worth after a proper pre-season. You have to take into account how many different positions Joe has played in this season and the fact that he has been consistently good once he's got used to playing there.

Yep, this! I'd pretty much all but written him off as a top player for us about 12 - 18 months ago. How fucking wrong I was! What a player he is! I'm absolutely delighted for him and so, so glad he's proved me & so many others completely wrong.

I would love to hear the argument of Szoboszlai having a better season than Gomez for this team..

My main argument would be that he's played better than him and had a more positive, transformational impact on many aspects of the team up to and including shape, mobility, pressing, guile and goals.

As I said, Joe Gomez is great and I am not seeking to put him down but personally, I do not believe he's been close to our best player this season. He has not been our best defender, he's most likely not in our best 11 and in my opinion, there are also a goalkeeper, midfielders and forwards ahead of him. What a lovely thing to have so many great footballers playing for us.

Neither have been our player of the season IMO but has Gomez had a bad game? Love Szoboszlai but he had a few poor games on the bounce, most likely due to tiredness but still

I wouldn't necessarily say he's been one of our best players this season in pure performance terms, but I think he has a decent argument for being one of the most important. Consistently fit, playing to a very high level across multiple positions, whenever  and wherever we've needed him.

In a season where nearly every player in the squad has had a decent spell on the sidelines injured whilst we've remained top of the league, I'm honestly not sure we'd still be there if Gomez hadn't been consistently fit. Have Salah, Alisson, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Jota had better individual seasons? Perhaps. But take them out and we've still kept going. Gomez has featured varyingly because Robertson, Tsimikas, Trent and Bradley were all long-term injury absences, often at the same time. Take him out and who knows where we'd be.

He's been superb though, personally think it's the best he's ever played for us - so consistent, so flexible, playing in a constantly changing side, and stepping up and putting in 7 or 8/10 minimum, every single week. After last season I genuinely didn't think he had this level in him anymore, but what a turnaround. It's actually nearly impossible to overstate the difference in his performances this season vs last season. Well in Joe.

Fair play to Joe today, did a job today. And he did incredibly well to win the corner that led to the goal. Put full effort in to get to the ball, turn and deflect the ball off the Forrest player.

Came to post the same thing.

Absolutely brilliant to win that corner. Played much better in midfield today too. We’ve got a James Milner utility man replacement

Said it before, will probably say it again, player of the season. In the midst of an injury crisis he’s played in so many roles.

Needs to be our starting LB for the rest of the season . Has the been the best in that position the whole season and we're so much more solid with him playing there.

He actually struggled a bit when he went back there. Fell asleep a couple of times. But overall a very solid game. He's probably fatigued.

I notice this too. He regularly gave 9/10 performances as LB for us for a while, but as soon as the players were coming back and he's been shipped around the pitch again, his performance kind of suffered a bit. Still did a job given the circumstance but now he'd give 7/10 performances because he has to adapt and change his game so frequently. Victim of his own versatility.

Hopefully we can move Joe back into defence now. But while in midfield, he did his best, didn't let anyone down, and we got two wins on the trot, which is all you can ask. Well done Joe!

With you on this.

Particularly enjoying his consistent run given his chequered past. The whole club is reaping the rewards for his patience and hard work. A great example to the kids.

He's the new James Milner!

I’m loving what Gomez is doing this season. Our longest serving player who has had at least 2 potentially career ending injuries that he has fought back from. He is, in old terms, a model pro, never complains about anything, where he plays, when he plays, or who he plays with. Never known him to raise his head in anger or show any disrespect towards the club in the whole time he’s been here. And yet he’s clearly as hard as nails and mentally super focussed and determined to have travelled the road he has done. He is a dedicated and true professional.

 I think he’s as magnificient as any of our players (who are ALL magnificient by the way ;D) and still so young. Fingers crossed he stays fit and has years ahead of him here. He deserves our absolute support and he deserves whatever good things come his way!

Same goes for some players in the same boat like Gakpo, some are just going to have to play to get the job done across various competitions. It'd be silly just resting everyone in midweek and giving ourselves a job to do at Anfield, it'd be better to win in Prague and then hopefully some more could have a rest ahead of the international break.

Other than the last two weeks fixture congestion hasn't been too bad this season and I can't think of anyone who has massively been overplayed. Bodes well with a strong squad if we can get men back from injuries in the next couple of weeks.

Incredibly important player this season.

Pretty much doing the utility role in the squad that Milner did in previous years. The injuries in the squad this season has meant Gomez has pretty much been a regular since the October international break.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.
