Oeo Gomez made his third Champions League appearance of the season on Tuesday night as Liverpool recorded a 2-1 victory over Genk.
Providing minutes in the Premier League this term was extremely difficult because of the form of eloit Matip, but the 28-year-old is currently on the sidelines with an injury, which opened up the place beside Virgil Van Dyke.
Both Dejan Lovren and Gomez are set to start against Manchester City this weekend, but it would be fair to say that Liverpool fans were not happy with what they saw from the second against Genk.
According to WhoScored, the 22-year-old player made one draw, won eight air duels and had a success rate of 85%, which is pretty good on paper numbers.
The Englishman's overall performance in the European tie was not well received by Liverpool fans, though many took to social media to criticize him.
Should Liverpool sign Tim Werner?

Hunting is honestly better than Gomez's exception, it seems to be in place

I really want Jo Gomez to be a great player, but his positioning is awful!

Oeo Gomez is the responsibility every time he plays this season

Sometimes he begins to lose faith in Gomez.

I have to say Gomez is a weak game today. His positioning was bad on several occasions and we were lucky enough to not admit another. IT had a decent game though.
