The Liverpool defender was forced off midway through the first half against Burnley on Wednesday night, with subsequent assessments suggesting he is likely to be out of action for up to six weeks.

The injury represents a significant blow to Klopp, who had complained to the match officials about the manner of Burnley's sliding tackles before Gomez was caught by Ben Mee's follow through in the 20th minute. It happened four or five times.

The 21-year-old will now miss the crucial Champions League tie with Napoli next week and Premier League games over the festive period against Manchester United, Wolves, Newcastle and Arsenal. Dyche told his post match press conference.

"I think the only one that was questionable was Bardsley's".

Klopp crticised the match referee Stuart Atwell, saying: "'I said to the referee after the first sliding tackle (made) over six or seven yards, when he got the ball and everyone liked it: "'Please, tell them they can not do that'".

"I don't think there's many fans in this country that want to see tackling go out of the game". I imagine a player who seems to be an honest player, in Gomez, realised that.

"We send him our best if any injury occurred, but it's not from a bad tackle".

"It's amusing, he didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating", Dyche said a news conference on Thursday.

Dyche also made clear that Klopp appeared to be in a minority of one in thinking there was an issue over the struggling home side's approach to defending against a team sitting second in the table. I know that. It's part of football but it lead to the situation.
