Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Joe Gomez's performance against Stoke

Liverpool defeated Stoke City 1-0 on Sunday but what did Reds fans make of Joe Gomez's contribution?

When Liverpool signed Joe Gomez from Charlton Athletic earlier this summer it looked as though the Reds were buying someone for the future rather than an instant solution to their problems at left-back.

However, after the 18-year-old’s Premier League debut against Stoke City on Sunday it seems Liverpool have a new fan favourite.

Prior to the weekend Gomez had played just 24 senior matches for Charlton, so this was always going to be a step up. But he proved more than ready for the challenge and by the final whistle there was no doubt the teenager should be starting for Liverpool on a regular basis this season.

It was Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho who won the match with what is fast becoming his trademark long-range strike, but Gomez played his part and it will be interesting to see how many chances Alberto Moreno gets in the months ahead.

After the 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:
