Liverpool played their penultimate match of their pre-season campaign on Saturday when they took on Finnish side Helsinki.
The last match of the Reds’ summer preparations comes this afternoon against Swindon Town, with a different set of players set to feature in their bid to stake a claim for a first-team place.
Against Helsinki, goals from Divock Origi and Philippe Coutinho sealed the victory, but it was summer signing Joe Gomez who really caught the eye at the back.
This summer has been one of change at Anfield, with manager Brendan Rodgers bringing in a considerable amount of new players, and while the likes of Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke are the star names, the young defender signed from Charlton Athletic looks a real find.
Gomez has featured regularly for Liverpool during pre-season and he could well start when the competitive action kicks off next weekend against Stoke.
Following their latest match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Gomez’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Joe Gomez could turn out to be our John Stones. Should give him a run at LCB. #lfc— Man of Justice (@SuperGops) August 2, 2015

Joe Gomez looks like he will be our starting left back. Brendan just won't learn. #LFC— Rahul Puri (@rahulpuri) August 2, 2015
Joe Gomez looks an absolute steal.Would have no problem seeing him start left back against Stoke. Looks way mature beyond his years. #lfc— Bikram Paul (@itzBikram) August 2, 2015
