Given Gomez’s injury history, there was some concern when he did not return for the second half, with Jordan Henderson taking his position and James Milner shifting to right-back as Liverpool won 2-1.

In his post-match press conference at St Mary’s, he said:

“Joey himself has pain but not too much, but it was really like a shock to the system. He was sitting in the dressing room, when I spoke to him he was in a good mood.

“I think we were probably lucky.”

Dr. Rajpal Brar, a sports physiotherapist, speculated on Twitter that Gomez had a high ankle sprain, which might keep him out for three weeks.

Of course, with two games remaining in which Trent Alexander-Arnold would start, Gomez’s season is likely ended, but the fact that he appears to have escaped a major and more long-term injury is a huge relief.

This season, Gomez has made 21 appearances, 11 of which have been starts.
