He was dropped from the team at the start of the season, but Alberto Moreno has impressed since the change in formation gave him a way back into the side.
The Spaniard was dropped for youngster Joe Gomez for the opening five games of the season, and was even linked with a move away from Anfield in the summer – just 12 months after arriving from Sevilla.
But the change to 3-4-3 has seen the 23-year-old, who has all the attributes for the left wing-back role, back in the side and highly impressive too.
Moreno has reacted well to being dropped, getting his head down and working hard – impressing on his sub appearances before finally getting his first start away to Bordeaux a fortnight ago.
“The manager thought it was the right time to put me in against Bordeaux and I grabbed my chance.
“I think I’ve done reasonably well since then; I’ve had three more games and I think I’ve played well, but obviously I’m still a young player and I know I can still continue to improve.
“I hope I’m giving the fans something to cheer about with my play and hopefully I’ll continue to impress them with my performances.”
Moreno has started every game since then – seemingly the only option Brendan Rodgers has on the left side after Lazar Markovic was loaned out to Fenerbahce.
Indeed, a start against FC Sion would be Moreno’s fifth in 14 days. Which isn’t ideal preparation for the Merseyside derby four days later.
It will also be his 50th appearance for the club.
“I couldn’t feel more settled, I’m really happy – not just myself, but my family. We love the club and the city.
“When my 50th game happens, I’ll be so pleased. To have my name among the illustrious players that have played for this club, to have featured in 50 games in just over a year, I’m really happy.
“But I’m not going to settle for that, I don’t want to take that as an achievement, I want to be playing more and more games. I want to be here for many more years and play as many games as I can.”
Including sub appearances, Moreno is the second most used player this season, behind Emre Can.
