Steve McManaman was not happy with Joe Gomez being used as an ‘opposite full-back’ in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Wolves. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were once again in a difficult situation in the Premier League, losing 1-0 to Wolves in less than 10 minutes.
Joe Gomez was always present from a defensive point of view, and Pedro Neto sent him to the cleaners during the match.
Being that the number one defender was hurt and another player was also missing the manager, Jurgen Klopp, told Gomez he should play in the right-back position. However, McManaman, speaking on Premier League Productions at 8:35 p.m. on September 16th, did not think Gomez liked that role.
From the end of last season through this season, fans have been watching Alexander-Arnold move from a right-back role to midfield. It worked at times, but it had its flaws, but when Gomez was cast in the role, McManaman clarified, “He doesn’t have to do that.”
Joe Gomez Converts to Right-back
Joe Gomez is not in his normal position. McManaman said he begins as a right-back, and he later plays in the middle of the field. “He does not have to do that.”
Weakened Liverpool Beat the Wolves
It was a great performance, not only because Jurgen Klopp’s team achieved a come-from-behind victory but also because they were missing key players.
Three players who usually play at the back were either hurt, not allowed to play, or, in the case of Ibrahima Konate, okay but on the bench. Still, Liverpool managed to grab a win against Manchester City.”
Also, in an earlier development, Manager Jurgen Klopp praised Liverpool defender Jarrell Quansah for making a real statement against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Liverpool’s Jarrell Quansah “did a really good job” against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. Following Saturday’s victory, manager Jurgen Klopp spoke on Liverpool’s official website:
It was a nightmare afternoon for Liverpool when Pedro Neto faced Hwang Hee-chan in the Wolves’ opening game.
Jurgen Klopp Said Nice things about Jarell Quansah
Liverpool came from behind to win with own goals from Cody Gakpo, Andrew Robertson, and Hugo Bueno. Klopp told Liverpool’s official website that he thought Quansah played well against Wolves.
Klopp said the German player added that while the players around him looked confused, it was Quansah’s genuine talk that impressed him most in the final line.
More of Quansar this Season
Van Dijk will return soon, Gomes will be traded to become central defender, and Ibrahima Konate is to return to the starting lineup. This means Quansah might fall down the table, but this performance could stick with Klopp for a long time.
Reports in recent days have suggested that Liverpool did not sign a center-back this summer, in part because they believed Quansah could earn promotion.
