This season, Joe Gomez has been a consistent performer for Liverpool as the Reds aim to win four trophies.
Following their FA Cup victory against Arsenal, Liverpool feels completely rejuvenated, as Joe Gomez has cautioned Fulham and the Premier League’s chase group.
The Merseysiders return to play on Wednesday when they take on Fulham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, while most other teams may now take advantage of a Christmas break.
That ends with the second leg two weeks later, sandwiched between a trip to Bournemouth in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s team is eager for the games to start quickly after the way Liverpool won 2-0 at the Emirates thanks to an own goal from Jacob Kiwior and some late-game action from Luis Diaz.
Gomez remarked, “We’ve got a little more zing in our step.” Once again, there is a rapid turnaround.
“Thank goodness we won, so there will be a little respite between games as there won’t be a rerun.
“But we want to make it to another final, which will likely take two legs, so we’ll go for it. There’s another big game on Wednesday.”
We wish to avoid getting excited. All of us are merely driven by want to enjoy the season to the fullest.
“Even though it sounds corny, all we can do is focus on one game at a time. We have a foundation to work from and there is desire.”
We experienced some difficult times last season, so we know it’s not always easy. We did, however, grow and learn from it. Let’s follow it and see where it leads.
Amazingly, Liverpool is dominating the Africa Cup of Nations without Mo Salah at the moment due to injuries, along with a number of other top players including Thiago, Andy Robertson, and Kostas Tsimikas.
The crew has a great camaraderie, Gomez continued. There’s a newness and a fire in the team.
“We’re not obsessing over who we have and haven’t got—the elite players we’ve missed this season.
However, the gaffer continues saying that since everyone can play defence and defence, we don’t need to worry about who’s absent.
“We must maintain that way of thinking. We can only take one at a time because it’s still early and there’s a long way to go.
For Gomez, a goal is the only thing lacking. Despite playing in 223 senior games, he has never found the back of the net.
Despite his assurance that he won’t overreact if it does happen.
It’s humorous, he exclaimed. “Now that it’s been eight years, everyone is talking about it!
“I’m not sure what started it. I want to be positive and have an impact on the game when I’m forward.
“Hopefully it happens, and I’ll let you know how I rejoice. However, I’ll let Mo take the top off!
