Joe Gomez Breaks Stuttgart Player's Elbow In Liverpool Friendly

By Mike Parrott

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez broke the elbow of a Stuttgart player when they played in Liverpool's first pre-season friendly. The dirty challenged overshadowed the 3-0 win for the English side.

With the start of the Premier League only less than three weeks away, the majority of Premier League sides have started playing their pre-season games.

Liverpool recently won their first pre-season game against Stuttgart 3-0 after goals from Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, and Rhian Brewster.

However, the game was overshadowed by Joe Gomez's dirty play to break the elbow of a Stuttgart player.

Erick Thommy, the Stuttgart player in question, was receiving the ball in Liverpool's half on the left-wing. With Thommy already sealing out Gomez from the ball, Gomez lashed out with a shove by dropping his shoulder into Thommy's back, sending the player flying into an advertising board.

The result from the immature foul has put Thommy out for six to eight weeks with a broken elbow and will miss the start of the Bundesliga.

The despicable foul didn't lead to a sending-off for the English CB, with Liverpool going on to score another two goals in the game.

Fans on Twitter rightfully disagreed with the decision, especially for the foul to happen in a meaningless friendly.
