Joe Gomez could be out for six weeks after Liverpool confirmed he suffered a lower leg fracture in Wednesday's 3-1 victory over Burnley.

The England defender was carried off on a stretcher in the first half at Turf Moor following a challenge with Ben Mee.

A statement on the club's official website read: "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 this is dependent on how his treatment and rehabilitation programmes progress."
