Alberto Moreno could be handed his first start of the season tonight against Chelsea at Anfield in the Carabao Cup third round. The Spanish full-back has been well and truly usurped by Andy Robertson as The Reds’ first-choice left-back, but that doesn’t mean the fans don’t love Moreno.

Moreno seems like one of those characters who naturally brings morale up in the Liverpool squad. The defender may not be the most amazing on the pitch but what he adds off of it is key to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The fans will be desperate to see Moreno put in a good shift if he is trusted with a starting berth tonight at Anfield. He could well be up against the likes of Willian or Pedro and he will have to be on his game.
Whilst the fans have a soft spot for Moreno, if he costs them their 100% start to the season then the fans won’t be too pleased. Klopp has masterminded seven wins out of seven this season and with their biggest test set to come in the next ten days as they face Chelsea twice, Napoli and Manchester City, everyone in the Anfield dressing room will have to be on their A-game to ensure they get through the next four games with their 100% record intact.
