Joe Gomez is a 'mini Virgil van Dijk', - Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold believes Joe Gomez is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League and has described him as "a mini Virgil van Dijk".

Gomez has impressed for Liverpool this season after missing out on the Champions League final and England's World Cup campaign with an ankle injury.
He has played in 10 of Liverpool's 11 games this season and helped Jurgen Klopp's side establish themselves in the top four of the Premier League.

The 21-year-old has mainly been deployed at centre-back alongside Van Dijk and his contributions have not got gone unnoticed by Alexander-Arnold.
"He [Gomez] is showing this season he is a top player," Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool's official website.
"At a young age, he's one of the best in his position in the league. That takes some doing, so that's credit to him especially with the setbacks he has had.
