Liverpool fans are not happy after Rio Ferdinand and the BT Sports panel pointed out Alberto Moreno’s role in the Sevilla opener.
The Spaniard didn’t cover himself in glory for Ben Yedder’s goal as he failed to get in front of his man, but Liverpool fans were keen to defend him for one pretty decent reason.
That being Dejan Lovren’s horrendous attempt at a clearance.
The central defender allowed the ball to pass him in the area after missing the clearance, which caught the entire Red defence off guard.
Though, Rio Ferdinand and the BT Sports team didn’t take that lightly and continued to slate Moreno.
Rio Ferdinand on Moreno: "He doesn't even think about defending" – which tbf, as a defender, isn't ideal.

While the goal for Sevilla could well have proved pivotal during the clash with Liverpool, it was not to be.
Instead, the Anfield side turned on the style and scored twice through Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Not only did they take the lead, it could have been more if it would not have been for Firmino’s missed penalty.
The player’s spot kick came off the post and no one was there for the rebound unfortunately for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Would it not have been for Lovren’s blunder, it could well have been a very convincing scoreline for Liverpool.
Liverpool fans disagree with Rio
While the opinion of Rio Ferdinand and the BT team may have been with Moreno being poor, Liverpool fans though quite the opposite.
Instead, they were praising the player for his ‘electric’ performance down the left-hand side.

Alberto Moreno is the new Marcelo. Moreno has always been oustanding offensively but LFC fans have put wool over eyes in singling him out.
