While the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern would have taken a draw with Chelsea prior to kick-off yesterday evening, the manner in which they conceded a late goal to Willian has annoyed the punters propping up our bar.
Indeed, our resident Reds have been far too accustomed to seeing Jurgen Klopp’s men give up defensive ground late on during games, following the infamous second-half collapse away at Sevilla in the Champions League earlier this week.

Many of our local Kopites aren’t quite over that result and the man who many have blamed remains a figure of frustration in our bar. Alberto Moreno’s constant presence in the first-team has proven rather baffling considering the signing of Andy Robertson in the summer and reports from the Sun have shed an interesting light on the latter’s matter.
According to their story, the former Hull City man would ‘gladly’ leave Merseyside on loan during the January transfer market after struggling to break into Klopp’s starting XI, despite some relatively promising appearances upon his initial arrival.
That’s barely a surprise as having to perform understudy duties to Moreno must be frustrating, though the report does also suggest Klopp would block any move away for the Scotland international, leaving everybody seemingly unhappy!
It’s hard to see what Moreno does to deserve being picked over Robertson? Though the Spaniard has improved, what was the point in signing the Hull City man, only to use him so sparingly? Deserves to play, wherever it may be.
