Liverpool's Joe Gomez left injured as England's under-21 side

Liverpool have a new fitness concern to examine ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Joe Gomez was injured in England's under-21 clash over Kazakhstan at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, a 3-0 win for the Three Lions.

The summer signing from Charlton Athletic had started the fixture, but limped off in the second half, after a collision with an opponent.

The Liverpool Echo report it was first feared he had tweaked a ligament in his knee, although do not believe it is serious.

Liverpool's medical staff are set to assess the injury ahead of training on Wednesday morning to find out more, with PremierInjuries.com reporting there is no scheduled return date for the defender, while more information is gathered.

Gomez would have loved to have been fully fit for Jurgen Klopp's first game as boss, and still may be, but he will need to convince his new manager that he will not be taking a risk by picking him.
