    England need a defence ASAP. Maguire and Gomez having a nightmare season so far.

    To fair to Gomez, I would say VVD isn’t having his best period either, their offside trap is all over the place at the moment.

    Not without Barkley. He's been a massive part of their performance, even if he didn't nail his own finishes.

    Gomez playing in such a lethargic manner all game. Weird.

    They can’t handle his runs through midfield.

    DIsplaced Alderweireld who remains starting centre back for the number one ranked international team and if there's one position Jose knows, its centre backs. DIer has become has most trusted one.

    I won't be too surprised if Dier emerges as a starting centre back for England come the Euro's.

    He's certainly got a chance, his rivals looking like Sunday League defenders nowadays.

    Don't get me wrong our defence looks poor at the moment. However, I don't think it's as poor as it looks right now and some balance is needed in terms of how we assess it. Ultimately, this has just been a crazy few weeks due to the unique circumstances at the start of this season. I do think that there will be a period where everything settles down again this season and players regress to some kind of mean, though admittedly that would still need to be improved upon.

    Grealish has absolutely torn Liverpool apart today. One of, if not the best performance I've seen from him. He has to play some serious game time for England now, if not be a nailed on starter.

    You're right but just after such a hammering both Gomez' and Maguire's self-confidence will be in ruins. Surely you can't play them both.

    ——————Pickford—————-
    ———Maguire——Gomez———-

    I’m trying to think of a worse 3 right now Hitler - Tojo - Mussolini in 1940 perhaps.

    To be fair to Gomez he was excellent last match against Arsenal.

    Liverpool seem to have structural issues defensively since that Watford match. Van Dijk has also been very ropey and error strewn since. I'd be willing to try Gomez and Dier as a pair in what will be a less demanding system and see what happens. Maguire seems like he's feeling the effects of his Greece antics, not sure he's in the right headspace at all.

    Of course, Gomez will also likely find himself dropped now as the less senior centre back so that will influence things going forward too.
