Gomez was stretchered off the pitch following a collision with Ben Mee and he now looks set to miss six weeks with the injury.

The England international took to social media on Friday to provide the fans with an update, and he looked in positive spirits doing so.

‘Hi everyone, it’s Joe. I just wanted to say thank you to you all for your kind messages and well wishes,’ said Gomez.

‘Obviously I’m gutted to have picked up the injury, but thankfully it’s not too serious and one that I can definitely be back strong from soon.

‘I will do my best to come back as quickly as possible and hopefully I will be back with you guys soon, so thank you.’

The 21-year-old is set to miss the entire festive period, which is traditionally the busiest time of the club football calendar in England.

This period for the Reds includes vital matches against Napoli on December 11, Manchester United on December 12 and Arsenal on December 29.

A reasonable return date for Gomez would be Liverpool’s clash against Crystal Palace on January 19.

The injury was picked up during the closing stages of the Merseyside derby last Sunday and Klopp confirmed Mane is likely to sit out another game.

But there is better news for Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson who also missed the win at Turf Moor.

‘Sadio is now out and tries to run first time, so it doesn’t sound like he will be ready for tomorrow,’ Klopp said.

‘Hopefully he can finish the programme, which we did for him today.

Robertson will be restored to the starting line-up (Picture: Getty)‘Gini (Wijnaldum) is fine. Andy (Robertson) is fine, Robbo played most of the games in an intense position, so that is why we gave him eight hours off.’

Liverpool will want to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City, who play Chelsea in the late kick-off on Saturday.

The Reds can go top for a few a hours if they beat Bournemouth and will be hoping Chelsea do them a favour and take points off the defending champions.

Bournemouth are enjoying a fantastic season so far under Eddie Howe, with the Cherries sitting seventh, but the recent win against Huddersfield ended a run of four defeats.

Liverpool said in a statement: ‘Gomez’s injury was further assessed by the Reds’ medical team at Melwood on Thursday.

‘Initial indications suggest the 21-year-old is facing a spell of up to six weeks out of action, though it’s dependent on how his treatment and rehabilitation programmes progress.’

How Jurgen Klopp angered Sean Dyche during Liverpool’s win over Burnley

Sean Dyche appeared unhappy with Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool beat Burnley (BPI/REX)Jurgen Klopp and Sean Dyche were involved in a heated exchange after Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Burnley on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool kept pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League following goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.

But after the final whistle, Dyche appeared unhappy with Klopp and the pair exchanged several words on the touchline.

Dyche claimed that he simply said ‘well done’ to Klopp, despite their exchange lasting for over 30 seconds.

But Dyche may have been frustrated with Klopp constantly voicing his complaints to Mike Dean, the fourth official, during the second half of the match.

Jurgen Klopp delivers Joe Gomez injury update after Liverpool’s win against Burnley

Joe Gomez went off injured against Burnley (Getty Images)Jurgen Klopp has hinted that Joe Gomez could face a lengthy spell out injured after the youngster was forced off on a stretcher during Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Burnley.

The 21-year-old had to be replaced by Trent Alexander-Arnold just 23 minutes into the game after being tackled by Burnley captain Ben Mee near the advertising boards behind the pitch.

Gomez looked to be in some pain as he left the pitch and afterwards Klopp suggested the injury could be a bad one with the defender set to undergo a scan tomorrow.

Speaking post-match, Klopp said: ‘It was his ankle. Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit. We have to see, we don’t know in the moment. We sent him home.’

More: Football

If Klopp’s suspicions prove to be correct and Gomez is out for some time, it would be a monumental blow to Liverpool as he has been one of their most consistent players this season.

The youngster has established a rock-solid partnership with Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s backline, helping the club to the best defensive record in the Premier League.

However, Klopp opted to rotate his side for the trip to Burnley, making seven changes which included Joel Matip being drafted in at centre-back, which pushed Gomez out to the right.

Gomez missed the Champions League final and the World Cup in the summer after having ankle surgery.

Man City forward Riyad Mahrez rates Chelsea and Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League

Riyad Mahrez helped Manchester City beat Watford on Tuesday (Picture: Getty)Manchester City forward Riyad Mahrez insists Chelsea and Arsenal are capable of winning the Premier League title this season.

City have made a superb start to their title defence, winning 13 of their 15 league fixtures to move two points clear of nearest rivals Liverpool.

Liverpool are the only other club yet to suffer a defeat in the Premier League this term, while Chelsea and Arsenal also occupy a top-four place.

A number of pundits have claimed Man City and Liverpool will battle it out for the title, but Mahrez says Chelsea and Arsenal could also challenge.

‘Nothing is done and we need to keep working very hard for each other and the team and trying to win every game.’

Manchester City outplayed Watford at Vicarage Road and Leroy Sane gave the visitors the lead shortly before half-time.

Mahrez then added City’s second immediately after the break, before Abdoulaye Doucoure scrambled home a late consolation goal for Watford.

‘You are not going to win every game 4-0 or 5-0. Going through these types of games makes you stronger,’ Mahrez added. ‘We played very well up until the second goal.

‘After that we created more chances and tried to kill the game but in football when you are 2-0 up and the opposition score, the crowd get behind them and it’s difficult.

‘We are very happy to win and get the three points. You are not going to win every game 4-0 or 5-0. Going through these types of games makes you stronger.

‘Now we need to focus every three days. We need to be ready and at our top.’

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard reacts to controversial Jurgen Klopp derby celebrations

Former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard (Picture: Getty)Steven Gerrard has defended Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool manager’s controversial celebration to the injury-time winner in the Merseyside derby.

Klopp sprinted onto the pitch and hugged goalkeeper Alisson after Divock Origi scored a dramatic and bizarre winner against Everton.

The German boss was subsequently fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association.

But Liverpool legend and current Rangers boss Gerrard understands Klopp’s reaction and says it is one of the reasons fans love the sport.

The former England midfielder said: ‘He ran about 30 yards less than me when I celebrated a goal!

‘Listen, it’s an emotional sport and an emotional game. You win a derby in the 96th minute, emotions naturally take over your body and your decision making.

‘I can understand it. I love Jurgen Klopp for who he is. He’s real, he’s authentic.

Jurgen Klopp was fined for his celebrations (Picture: Getty)‘Of course, us as managers have a responsibility to try and tame it as much as we can, but sometimes that it is difficult.

‘He’s come out and apologised and it is what it is. I think there is a big problem in this sport if we take celebrating out of it.

‘It’s not the reason why we love Jurgen Klopp, but is (Jose) Mourinho not famous for sprinting down the touchline? Do the viewers not love this?’

Gerrard added: ‘Of course, you open yourself up to be punished, but I don’t think we can actually criticise people for being emotional.

‘I love that side of people. I love it when they are real and let themselves go.

‘Of course you must respect the opposition managers and coaches, but to celebrate a big win or a big goal, I want that to stay.’

Jurgen Klopp suggested Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum are set to keep their place in midfield for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Burnley on Wednesday.

Jordan Henderson is available for selection again after missing the Merseyside derby victory over Everton, but may have to make due on the bench.

Klopp praised Fabinho’s impact during the Everton game, in which the Brazilian put in arguably the best performance of his season so far.

Asked if Liverpool could field the same midfield, Klopp replied: ‘Yeah, no problem.’

But the Liverpool boss stopped short of saying club captain Henderson would not be involved.

Klopp did, however, heap praise on Fabinho after a slow start to his Liverpool career.

Fabinho was good against Everton (Picture: Getty)‘I don’t judge it on big steps or small steps, it was just a good performance from him. It was exactly what I expected,” Klopp said.

‘So far, Gini (Wijnaldum) and Fabinho have worked really well together on the defending side.

‘The most important thing about that game was how we defended up front – that was the biggest difference to other games. The high pressure was really brilliant.

Henderson could come back into the side (Picture: Getty)‘I don’t know if you have seen many of the other Everton games this season, but nobody so far could really deny their build up like we did, and they’ve played away at Chelsea.

‘That was really brilliant. You have to be in the right spaces and that looked really good.

‘On the other side, playing football was good. It can be better, like it always can be, but he was calm on the ball and it was a really good performance.’
