Liverpool were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in heartbreaking fashion thanks to a quality goal from Eden Hazard but fans are fuming at the way Alberto Moreno defended against the Belgian.
The backline that Jürgen Klopp fielded at Anfield to face Chelsea was a throwback to when the German took over in 2015, as Mignolet, Moreno, Matip, Lovren and Clyne took to the pitch.
While Klopp was the man who signed Matip, his time with the Reds has been associated with the dire quality that was on show for most of Brendan Rodgers’ reign as Liverpool boss.
And Moreno is arguably the most infamous of Liverpool’s defenders after Dejan Lovren and his poor defensive showing at Anfield on Wednesday evening sparked an angry response from fans on social media.
Clyne defended well against Hazard on numerous occasions, Hazard moved to the other side and cut through Moreno like he wasn’t even there.

That Eden Hazard goal is nothing short of world class. It’s immense, but I really haven’t missed seeing Alberto Moreno getting spun to cost us the game. Makes me appreciate Robbo even more.

Nights like these make you appreciate Trent and Robertson. Clyne looks like he’s not played football in three years and Moreno was constantly skinned.

Moreno is shite to be honest. Thankfully Robbo is superman and won’t get injured.

• How is Moreno a professional football player?
• 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.

Hazard came on, saw Moreno playing down our left flank, switched wings knowing he could comfortably expose him, and scored the winning goal. Says everything that you need to know about Moreno. One of the most braindead, talentless LB’s to have put on the Red shirt. Liability.

Hazard v Moreno just isn’t fair really
