Alberto Moreno has been handed a start in Liverpool’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon and fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the full-back’s inclusion.
Former England international James Milner dropped out of the Reds’ line-up for the encounter at Selhurst Park due to illness in what is Jurgen Klopp’s only change following the last league win over West Brom.
Moreno will be looking to put in a positive performance in defence after falling out of the starting eleven in the new campaign.
However, a number of fans weren’t so confident of the Spain international starting on social media.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Th 24-year-old full-back has often been criticised for his defensive displays, but is praised on his attacking ability.
However, due to his limits in defence he has played in just six encounters for Klopp’s side this season with Milner moving into an unnatural position.
The Reds will be hoping to continue their impressive start to the new campaign as they currently sit in third place in the league and three points off league leaders Manchester City.
