Liverpool star Joe Gomez carried off on stretcher after smashing into advertising hoarding

The England international collided with the advertising hoardings and was replaced by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 23rd minute.

The injury looks be to his ankle and will come as a massive blow to Jurgen Klopp ahead of the heavily congested festive schedule.

Gomez has been revelation for the Reds this season.

He has been instrumental in the line-up with Virgil Van Dijk -and has contributed significantly to their nine clean sheets this term.

Liverpool are hoping for a win against Burnley to keep the pressure on Man City.

Guardiola's men won 2-1 against Watford last night to stretch the gap to five.

And the Reds have been on great league form recently – wining four of their last five matches.

Their last win came against bitter rivals Everton on Sunday – where Klopp was fined for his celebrations.
