Liverpool fans have aired their annoyance on Twitter after seeing that Alberto Moreno has been once again named in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI.
The Spaniard has been handed the left-back slot for this evening’s Champions League qualifying first leg against Hoffenheim in Germany.

This follows his starting berth in Saturday’s Premier League opener against Watford, which ended in a 3-3 draw.
In fact, Klopp has named the same team that began the match at Vicarage Road, meaning that there is still no Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge or Adam Lallana.
Moreno was dropped by his manager last season, with James Milner being preferred in the full-back position, despite it not being the Englishman’s traditional role.
Even though the 31-year-old held the position for the majority of the 2016-17 campaign, Klopp has seemingly been left impressed by Moreno’s pre-season form.
The Liverpool boss may look at the former Sevilla man in a new light, but the fans are certainly not, judging by the reaction on Twitter.
What has Robertson done wrong? Scary that he thinks Moreno is better than last season!!

Anyone remember the last time Moreno played in Europe.
Cost us the final.

So hi @LFC. I'm thoroughly confused. I thought we discussed how crappy Moreno is? Confused why he's starting and Robertson isn't.

Why does Klopp insist on playing Moreno? We're going to ruin our season because his insistence that our defence is competent. https://t.co/ytKD3TAMzu
