Liverpool's Joe Gomez ruled out with ankle injury

Liverpool will be without injured defender Joe Gomez and midfielder Emre Can for Saturday's Premier League trip to Crystal Palace, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.

Gomez suffered ankle ligament damage on international duty with England last Friday, limping off early in the friendly against the Netherlands in Amsterdam.

The 20-year-old right back will miss the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City at Anfield next week.

Can pulled out of the Germany squad for friendlies against Spain and Brazil as he recovers from the back injury he suffered in Liverpool's 5-0 league win over Watford this month.

Defender Nathaniel Clyne is fit again after back surgery and could make his first appearance of the season against Roy Hodgson's side.
