Jamie Carragher criticises Alberto Moreno on Twitter, defends Brendan Rodgers

Jamie Carragher has criticised Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno.

Liverpool may have beaten Chelsea 3-1 this afternoon, but former defender Jamie Carragher has had stern words for left back Alberto Moreno.

The Reds came back from behind to win at Stamford Bridge, with two goals from Philippe Coutinho and a late strike from Christian Benteke cancelling out Ramires' opener for Chelsea.

It was new manager Jurgen Klopp's first win in the Premier League, and piled the pressure on Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who suffered another disappointing loss in what is proving to be a torrid season.

It all started so well for Chelsea though, as Ramires ghosted in to the box to head home the opening goal, with defender Alberto Moreno potentially at fault for not tracking the Brazilian's run in to the box.

Moreno, 23, may have been signed by former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, but the left back told Sky Sports earlier this week that he didn't enjoy life under Rodgers, stating that he already prefers Klopp.

However, having had a lapse of concentration, Moreno was criticised by former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher, who took to Twitter to state that defensive errors like those are exactly why Rodgers lost faith in his ability,


The Spaniard still has plenty of potential, and his pace helps Liverpool going forward, but he must improve defensively if he is to become one of the Premier League's better left backs.
