One Liverpool Player Is Getting Absolute Pelters After Wolves Display
If, during a football match, your performance is of such a low quality that Mark Lawrenson tells you to 'get a life', you should probably chalk it up as a bad day and volunteer to be substituted.
Not Alberto Moreno though, who faced up to the glaring inadequacies of his first half performance to try his luck during the second half of Liverpool's FA Cup fourth round tie with Wolves at Anfield, this afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp's team went into half time trailing the Championship strugglers 2-0, thanks to goals from Richard Stearman and Andreas Weimann.
Cheer up Alberto, things could be a lot worse. Just ask this lot...

During the opening 45 minutes, Wolves loanee Helder Costa received a pat on the back from Moreno, prompting former Liverpool centre-half Lawrenson to proclaim, "Moreno has just gone and slapped Costa on the back well done. What on Earth is going on? You're getting beaten at home by a Championship team! Get a life!"
As glorious as that exclamation may be, it wasn't the only criticism the Spanish left-back was to receive over the course of the 90 minutes.
Mark Lawrenson has just told Alberto Moreno to 'get a life'. Absolutely fantastic.- Tom Marshall-Bailey (@TomMarshall_B) January 28, 2017
Moreno is the worst LB I've ever seen at Liverpool. I don't even like looking at his face.- Steve Heighway (@Mywayorthe) January 28, 2017
Moreno was right when he said I am still the same player, still dog :poop: #LFC- Tom (@TMaestroh) January 28, 2017
I'd genuinely rather play with no LB then to play Alberto Moreno at LB.- Kloppholic (@Kloppholic) January 28, 2017

If Moreno had stayed back a little longer that second goal could have been stopped. #LIVWOL- BIG Mike (@Cheers_Mike) January 28, 2017

Moreno robbing a living at Liverpool. Absolute garbage.- Kieran Lewis (@Kieranlewis91) January 28, 2017
Moreno is dead wood at this club and needs to leave before he costs us any more poor results.- Chris Best (@FriskyFirmino) January 28, 2017
In Moreno's defence, he wasn't exactly on his own in terms of his level of performance, with several Liverpool players failing to impress against lower league opposition.
At the time of writing, the scoreline stands at 2-1 to Wolves, with Divock Origi pulling a goal back for Liverpool.
