Player Performance Analysis: Alberto Moreno vs Spurs

In all honesty, Liverpool haven’t had a consistently performing left-back since the days of the fiery-headed John Arne Riise in his prime. It was one of the positions that the Reds were desperate to strengthen having lost Jose Enrique to a knee injury for much of last season, leaving Glen Johnson and mainly Jon Flanagan to fill the void.
