Danny Mills has actually suggested Liverpool may be withholding details on Joe Gomez in the middle of fears his injury is even worse than very first idea.

The Liverpool centre-back suffered a severe knee injury in a non-contact event while training at St George’s Park on England duty.

Gomez is facing an extended period on the sidelines, however since yet no timeframe has actually been provided on when the protector is expected to return.

Previous Premier League protector Mills believes this is “odd” and worries Liverpool are keeping their cards near their chest due to the fact that Gomez’s injury is worse than very first thought.

” There’s been no timeframe offered by the club which I discover a bit odd,” Mills told Football Expert. “That’s a little bit of an odd one in itself to be sincere.

” When Virgil van Dijk got injured they came out quickly and said it was his ACL.

” You do question if there’s been something a little bit worrying in there for Joe Gomez which is why they have not released what it is.

” Maybe the surgery is a little bit more complex and they believe it may be quicker however there’s something in there they may be fretted about and they don’t want to put that out in people’s minds and it may be a bit longer than they hope.”

Jurgen Klopp is experiencing something of an injury crisis at Liverpool at the moment, with a number of key gamers out of action.

Virgil van Dijk might miss the entire season with an ACL injury, while Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold are also currently on the sidelines.
