Liverpool’s tweet of Moreno’s scorpion kick backfires

Liverpool fans will already be feeling tense known that a clash against their biggest enemies is just around the corner.

Jurgen Klopp’s men host Manchester United at Anfield in the lunchtime kickoff on Saturday with just one win in their last seven behind them.

In the Premier League, a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City is the only blot on Liverpool’s record, but they have won just a single one of their last three games in the division.

United, however, are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions, and with the knowledge that Sadio Mane is out with a hamstring injury, Liverpool have a lot to do to inflict a first defeat of the season on their rivals.

In the build up to the match, the Reds’ Twitter feed posted a video of Alberto Moreno scoring a scorpion kick in a training session.

From the clip, it looked like there was a jovial atmosphere in the camp and the Spaniard certainly enjoyed scoring in the manner that he did.

The fans, though, are not in the mood for videos of impressive skill, they would much rather see Moreno work on his defensive attributes.

The 25-year-old was a forgotten man last season, with James Milner occupying the left-back role, but in the current campaign the former Sevilla man is getting many more minutes.

Moreno has made seven appearances in all competitions this season.
