Liverpool's Gomez to undergo surgery on leg fracture

Jurgen Klopp admitted his Liverpool side did not deserve to beat West Ham on Monday evening.

And that's how the scores stayed as Liverpool drew their second consecutive match.

James Milner was offside when Adam Lallana passed him the ball which led to Sadio Mane scoring for the Reds.

Meanwhile, West Ham captain Mark Noble told Sky Sports after the match that he and his teammates "scared" Liverpool for the 90 minutes.

However, the injury has proven hard to overcome and after failing to return to full training in January, Jurgen Klopp confirmed last week that Gomez was set for an extended spell on the sidelines. They scored a goal, we scored an offside goal.

'It's a point and it's a fair point. The referee must know that at half-time, it explains the second half because I think the referee knew and you saw there were a lot of unusual situations, not decisive, just rhythm breakers.

Klopp took exception to those comments, as he perhaps showed that the ups and downs of a title race are starting to show. At the end we were up again. As I said, the preparation for the game was far away from being ideal and we still got a point. In general, we lost one game in the whole season, so the team are doing well. It's a deep defending side and we have to cope with that and create'. As I said, the set-piece situation is not normal for us; the routine they played for the goal is brilliant but we knew about it.

Gomez has been sidelined since the 3-1 win at Burnley in December, and has missed the last 11 games, with his layoff initially expected to be up to six weeks.

"The goal and last chance from Origi was a big mistake from the linesman", said the Chilean.

"We need a good performance against the leaders".

Liverpool believe Gomez will play again this season, though.

Juergen Klopp's side have only the league and the Champions League to focus on having been knocked out of the League Cup and the FA Cup, a luxury that City do not enjoy.
