Liverpool fans not happy with Alberto Moreno's reaction to conceding early goal
Probably not the best way to react.
Alberto Moreno, for good or for bad, has a reputation for not being the sharpest tool in the box. Whether it be on or off the pitch, he's ridiculed somewhat for being a bit of a clown. It's perhaps a tad unfair, as somewhere in there, there's a good footballer - especially going forward.
But he did himself no favours in Liverpool's opening fixture of the Premier League season with Watford. The Reds went 1-0 to the home side within 8 minutes with atrocious defending of a set piece. And everyone looked suitably dejected. Everyone it seems, apart from a certain Spaniard.
The happy-go-lucky 25-year-old was seen laughing and joking not soon after the goal was conceded - and it didn't go down very well...

He looked to have made amends when he helped set up Sadio Mane's equaliser on the 29th minute, combining well with teammate Emre Can. All was forgiven...
GET FUCKING IN MORENO INVOLVED FUCK THE HATERS #YNWA

Brilliant by Moreno and Can.

But only two minutes later, he and Dejan Lovren were at fault for slack defending which led to Abdoulaye Doucoure putting the home side back in the lead. The pitchforks were out once more. Perhaps not something to smile about, eh Alberto?
I hate Moreno so fucking much
