Alberto Moreno started for Liverpool for the first time this season (Picture: Getty)Liverpool supporters collectively blamed Alberto Moreno after the side’s impressive clean sheet record was ended in a 4-1 victory over Cardiff.
Fans were already fearing the worst when Jurgen Klopp selected Moreno in his starting XI for the first time this season. First-choice left-back Andrew Robertson was named on the bench for the Premier League clash.
The Reds flew out of the blocks against Neil Warnock’s men and Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock in the 10th minute from close-range.
Cardiff managed to keep Liverpool at bay for the remainder of the first half before Sadio Mane double the home side’s lead in the 66th minute after slaloming round several defenders.
The visitors pulled one back ten minutes later and it was the first time since February that Liverpool had conceded at Anfield. That’s 918 minutes of play without a goal!
Sadio Mane was on fire against Cardiff (Picture: Getty)Further goals from Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed three points for Liverpool but fans couldn’t get over their clean sheet record being ruined.
Moreno was easily beaten before Callum Paterson’s goal and many blamed the Spaniard for the goal…
Wouldn’t you know, we concede at home for the first time since February when Moreno starts

You don’t get a clean sheet at Anfield when you start Alberto Moreno.
