Speaking to The World Game, Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno has hit back at his critics, insisting he is happy with his form.

The left back has not had the best of times at Anfield since arriving from Sevilla in 2014.

He struggled for form under Brendan Rodgers and has so far failed to improve under Jurgen Klopp, with a disastrous performance in the Europa League final still sticking in the memory.

This season has not got off to a better start as he put in a poor display in the first half of the 4-3 win over Arsenal last Sunday.

The critics have been plentiful since but he has hit back, insisting he is happy with his form for the Reds.

“Everyone can make mistakes, even Lionel Messi, we’re all human. It’s about keeping going and keeping positive,” he told The World Game.

“I am very happy here, I love Liverpool Football Club, I love playing here, I’m happy with my form and how I’ve played, overall the fans are happy with me as well.”

It now remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp is happy with the Spaniard’s performances or is in fact looking for a replacement.

His pursuit of Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell was well-publicised this summer, indicating that he may have been looking other options.

So far a new signing in the position has not arrived, though, and it will be interesting to see if one does before the end of the transfer window.
