It’s all about taking the positives when trying to deal with frustrating games such as this afternoon’s FA Cup third round clash with Plymouth.
Liverpool dominated from start to finish with Loris Karius having his most comfortable game in goal for the club so far yet still the Reds couldn’t break the deadlock. A replay away at Plymouth isn’t ideal and only adds to what is already a busy few weeks for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
One of very few positives to come out of the game was Joe Gomez getting 90 minutes under his belt in his first appearance of the season following a 16 month injury layoff.
Even if the result didn’t go Liverpool’s way, it was great to see the defender back in action after such a gruelling period on the sidelines.
He was relatively untroubled, looked strong when he was called into action and left unscathed- a good day for him on a personal note.
Fans were delighted to see the former Charlton man back at Anfield and took to Twitter to celebrate his return.
