Gary Neville has blasted Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno for his display in Sunday’s clash with Arsenal, speaking on Sky Sports. 

The Reds travelled to the Emirates on Sunday looking to get their Premier League season off to a winning start.

They managed to do just that too, with goals from Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane seeing them to a 4-3 victory.

While his teammates impressed, Moreno did not, conceding a penalty in the first half and then being caught out of position for Theo Walcott’s opening goal.

And Neville did not hold back in his criticism of the Spaniard, saying Liverpool might as well start a goal down with him in their team.

“You might as well start a goal down with Moreno at left back, he’s got no concept of the players around him,” he told Sky Sports.

It now remains to be seen if this is the final nail in the coffin for Moreno at Liverpool.

The defender continued to struggle last season, with his display in the Europa League final against former side Sevilla coming in for particular criticism.

This display was the latest in a long line of poor performances and it would not be surprising to see the Reds going big to find a replacement before the end of the transfer window.
