After a frantic Christmas period in which his Liverpool side pulled away at the top of the Premier League, it was no surprise that Jurgen Klopp made wholesale changes for the FA Cup third round trip to face Wolves last night.
The German made no fewer than nine alterations to his side and one of the players who came into the fold was Alberto Moreno, who has been outspoken about his poor morale over the festive period.
Perhaps Klopp wanted to give the Spaniard an opportunity to back up his words with a performance to show what he can do, or put him in the shop window because his contract runs out in the summer.
Either way, it didn’t work, as Moreno was consistently caught out of position as the Reds slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Molineux, with Ruben Neves lashing home the winner from long range in the second half.
Moreno has already become a figure of fun at Anfield and the rampant performances of Andy Robertson in the left back role only serve to show the supporters how far off the required standard the former Seville man is.
So in the aftermath of a disappointing defeat, Liverpool supporters showed their displeasure at Moreno’s performance and we’ve put together some of the best reaction…
Only good thing about losing is we won’t have to watch mignolet or Moreno play again for Liverpool 😊

Moreno has to go, rather not have a LB at all than field that useless mule for another game

Dont know why Jurgen isn't worried about the errors made by Moreno or Lovren or Mignolet. With some of the worldclass players in the squad these players will never grow above par never perform well when needed. 3 weakpoints, shall be removed. #LFC

#WOLLIV positives from tonight, when watching it wasn’t one. Answered a lot of questions. End of the road for Sturridge, Moreno in a LFC shirt. The youngsters need to go out on loan, Virg, Sadio, Mo, Alisson, TAA and Bobby all okay for the league. We need more depth all over #lfc
