Joe Gomez has undergone surgery to repair a tendon in his knee with Liverpool deeming the operation to be a success.

The central defender was injured during a routine training session at St George’s Park yesterday and the nature in which he sustained it - there was nobody around him and there was no impact from a challenge - left England head coach Gareth Southgate devastated about the potential severity of the damage.

Gomez was scanned at St George’s Park last night and underwent the procedure to repair a tendon in his knee. Crucially, surgeons did not discover any damage to his cruciate, medial or lateral ligaments in his knee; had that been the case, his recovery would have been even more problematic.
