Liverpool fans took to Twitter to criticise Alberto Moreno after the Reds suffered their first defeat of the season against Chelsea.
The left-back played the full 90 minutes in the Carabao cup but failed to impress supporters, particularly after Eden Hazard brilliantly twisted and turned through the Liverpool defence en route to scoring the winner. Moreno has been vilified by fans in the past and the 27-year-old was lambasted once again after another disappointing performance.
Andy Robertson has become the club's first choice left-back and most supporters missed his presence in the side. Several fans took to Twitter as they compared the struggling Spaniard with the accomplished performances of Robertson.
Is there a bigger gap between a player and his understudy than Robertson and Moreno? Like having Maldini and Konchesky as your left backs— The Walks (@OfficialWalks) September 26, 2018
• How is Moreno a professional football player?— - (@AnfieldRd96) September 26, 2018
• Annoying we’re out of another cup.
• Moreno should never play for us again.
• Appreciate Robertson.
• We go again on Saturday.
I am fuming. Goodnight.
Moreno doesn't even deserve to be back up to Robertson. Get rid of him and get an academy player in !! 🐕💩— Jake Curtis (@jakecurtis9) September 26, 2018
Watching Alberto Moreno makes you realise just how wonderful Andy Robertson is.— Matt (@FalseFirmino) September 26, 2018
Some fans, however, just attacked Moreno. Most claimed that he had no footballing ability and demanded that he never play for Liverpool again after yet another abysmal performance.
Moreno is Liverpool’s ‘phil jones’ awful player— scott ashton (@ashylufc) September 26, 2018
One thing last night confirmed is that Moreno isn’t fit to wear the shirt— Sluggie #LFC4LIFE (@Sluggie6883) September 27, 2018
When are we selling Moreno?— 🖤 = ⚽️ (@roo_fie) September 27, 2018
Liverpool face the Blues again on Saturday and will hope for a better result when they restore several of their first team players to the starting XI. The Reds are top of the Premier League with a perfect win record but face a tough test from third placed Chelsea as they look to maintain their impressive form.
