Alberto Moreno relishing Liverpool's fixture schedule

Alberto Moreno has started all but one of Jurgen Klopp's 10 games in charge.

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has said on the club's official website that he is enjoying the busy fixture schedule the Reds are currently enduring, which is seeing the Spaniard play 90 minutes in near enough every game.

Moreno is likely to line up against Southampton on Wednesday evening when Liverpool play their fourth game in 11 days, as they look to book their place in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

The defender told the official Liverpool website: “We just like to play matches, as many matches as we can, and at the moment I’m managing to do that.

“The manager has been putting his faith in me and I’ve being doing pretty well. I think that’s the dynamic that I need to continue with.

“Keep playing well, keep winning games, continue to put a good run of games together and importantly, keep entertaining the fans.

“I don’t think that at any point in my professional career have I had such a long run of consecutive games, and I can tell you that I’m enjoying it."

Some will point to Liverpool's fixture build-up and lack of full-back options and worry that fatigue may set in when it comes to both the Spaniard and his teammate Nathaniel Clyne on the opposite flank. 

At the moment, Moreno is the only specialist left-back available, though it has been suggested that Klopp is willing to give Jose Enrique an opportunity to show what he can do - but he featured for the under-21 side at centre-back earlier in the week in a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United. 

After this game there are six more matches before the year concludes, and progression to the semi-finals of the League Cup will see yet more midweek fixtures for the Reds that Moreno is more than likely to be featuring in.

It's good for Liverpool that Moreno feels well enough to play every game during this busy period, but there is still this worry for the Reds over a slight lack of options.
