Liverpool defender Joe Gomez was seriously injured during England training.

The FA has not yet commented on the incident, which occurred during a Wednesday morning session, but it is understood that Gomez is receiving treatment, while the extent of the injury is being assessed. England coach Gareth Southgate is due to address the media on Wednesday evening.

Gomez’s long-term absence would be a heavy blow to Liverpool, who is expected to miss fellow center-back Virgil van Dijk for the remainder of the season after suffering a severe knee injury in front of Everton last month.

Jürgen Klopp also missed midfielder Fabinho, who was replaced in the center of defense after Van Dijk was injured, but the Brazilian is expected to return to the stadiums after the international break.
