Joe Gomez fancies himself and fellow defender Virgil van Dijk in a race over a longer distance against speed merchants Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

The Liverpool No.12 recently fielded a range of amusing questions from supporters for a special video interview that can now be watched in full below.

One poser touched on a debate that has already taken place within the Reds squad: which of the four players mentioned would win a race?

“We’ve had this discussion,” replied Gomez, who returned to first-team action this month following a lower leg fracture in December.

“I think the first 10 to 15 [yards], Salah and Mane are leaving me and Virg. If it’s over the halfway line, me and Virg are catching them. Then, who knows from there?”
