Premier League News: The former England goalkeeper claims that Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has a big season ahead of him at Anfield.
The Englishman pretty much became the fourth-choice centre-back for Jurgen Klopp last season following the arrival of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
The England international was behind Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate in Klopp’s list of choices last season.
Gomez also replaced Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back on several occasions last season.
However, Paul Robinson stated that the versatile defender could turn his career around this season by winning his place back.
The former England number one maintains that Gomez has what it takes to become a regular for club and country.
He told Football Insider: “Joe has the ability to win his place back in this Liverpool team. He will have a full pre-season which will help.
“Jurgen Klopp wants to keep him, there’s no doubt about that. I’m sure he’ll get plenty of playing time this year. He has the ability to start week in week out. We’ve seen him in the England squad. He won’t take much time to get back to his peak. .”
Robinson is adamant that the defender can give Klopp problems to deal with if he has a good pre-season and a solid start to the season.
He added: “It’s been a big season for him this year. Towards the end of the season, if he doesn’t have a lot of playing time, he has to reevaluate where he is.
“He wants to play first-team football if he doesn’t get it at Liverpool. If he is fit and starts the season well he will give the manager problems. He is good enough to stay in that team.”
