Gomez initially struggled following his £3.5m move from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2015, rupturing his ACL merely days after Klopp arrived at Anfield, before unfortunately suffering a Achilles injury that prevented him from making a first-team appearance until January 2017.

The resilience the 21-year-old has shown to come back from setbacks at such a young age is remarkable and it is testament to his drive and talent that he can now lay claim to being arguably the finest young centre-back in England.

With Alisson, Van Dijk and now Gomez committing their futures until 2024 and with Robertson and Alexander-Arnold tied down until 2023, Liverpool have a defensive unit which can be a staple for years to come.
