Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony believes that Liverpool should 'move on' from Joe Gomez after a difficult run of form.
Gomez has featured regularly for Jurgen Klopp's side in the past month.
He came off the bench to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold at half-time in the 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on October 9.
Gomez put in an accomplished display at right-back, and kept his place for the 7-1 win over Rangers on the following Wednesday.
He then moved to centre-back, starring in the 1-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield.
But Gomez hit the headlines on Saturday after making a costly error in the 2-1 defeat to Leeds at Anfield.
His wayward backpass did not find Alisson, who was left stranded as Rodrigo ran on to the ball and tapped it into an empty net.
He also conceded a penalty in the 1-0 win over West Ham, which was eventually missed by Jarrod Bowen.

MacAnthony, who is a Liverpool fan, said: "They need to move on from some players.
"Gomez, for me, he's not a top-class centre-half. Brilliant against Man City, but mistake against Nottingham Forest and mistake the other night [versus Leeds].
"It's cost you in two games against two teams in the bottom three. Liverpool of old don't lose games like that."
Klopp's side are currently short of options at centre-back, with Joel Matip still recovering from a calf injury.
Konate, however, has made a successful return - and may well be lining up alongside Van Dijk in the next two games before Premier League sides break for the World Cup.
For Gomez, he will be desperate to fight his way back into the team, and despite a tricky recent spell, his performance against City shows that he still has the talent to get back into the XI and show fans again what he is capable of.
