Supporters of Liverpool have this evening reacted angrily to seeing Alberto Moreno start ahead of Andy Robertson at left-back.
The Reds travelled to Russia to take on Spartak Moscow in their second Champions League fixture of the campaign, having drawn 2-2 at home to Sevilla in their Group E opener.
Manager Jurgen Klopp opted to start with his tried and trusted front trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, with Philippe Coutinho also included in the starting XI.
Most fans of the Merseyside giants had few complaints regarding Klopp’s starting XI, aside from one decision.
The German tactician opted to place faith in Alberto Moreno at left-back once again, despite the Spanish stopper’s widely-documented defensive struggles both this season and last.
This meant that promising Scottish talent Andy Robertson, who has impressed during limited time on the pitch this season, was once again left out, with Reds fans quick to make their disapproval regarding the decision known on social media:
I seriously am bemused how Robertson MOTM in games he’s played don’t start over Mr I can’t defend Moreno

Robertson can also defend, Moreno can’t.

The only problem I have is Moreno, Robertson has been top notch every time he’s played https://t.co/SKe0kZAnPb

Somebody want to explain to me how Klopp views Moreno as a better player than Robertson 😂? #baffled

Think Robertson is a lot better than Moreno to be honest

Why do they not play Robertson! Moreno is horse shit

If Klopp is sacked it should be for picking Moreno before Robertson. Robbo defends and attacks better. Poor lad must be wondering why?

Robertson is twice the player Moreno is, mind boggling.
