Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has vowed to come back stronger than ever after his latest injury setback.

Gomez was ruled out for up to six weeks after suffering a lower leg fracture during last Wednesday's Premier League game at Burnley, but says he'll draw on past experiences on the road to recovery.

"Obviously I am devastated with the timing of it. You never want to get injured," Gomez told the club's website.

"I've been here a few years and I am still young, but it's something I'm used to and I am capable of dealing with setbacks like this. I've done it before and I'll do it again.

"You never want to be injured, as a player you always want to play. It will be tough for me sitting out for a while, but I will do everything I can to get back better and stronger."

The 21-year old has had several serious injuries since joining Liverpool in 2015, including cruciate ligament, ankle and Achilles problems, but has been a fixture in Jurgen Klopp's side this season, forming an impressive centre-back pairing alongside Virgil van Dijk.
