Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno ready for Robertson battle

Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno has conceded he faces a battle to get back into the first-team at the club due to Andy Robertson’s recent form.

The Spaniard enjoyed a steady start to the season under boss Jurgen Klopp but he suffered an ankle injury during the 7-0 Champions League win over Spartak Moscow in December.

He has not featured since and Robertson has since made 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Reds.

The Scotland international joined the club in the summer and he has added plenty of energy to the defensive line and Moreno admits he now faces an uphill struggle.

The former Sevilla man may get his chance to impress in the FA Cup clash with West Brom on Saturday and he is desperate to make an impact in the coming weeks.

“It’s always tough to get your place in the first team at Liverpool Football Club,” Moreno told the club’s official website.

“Obviously, as a result of my injury, Robertson has taken his chance and grabbed it with both hands. But I‘m training really hard now and determined to do all that I possibly can through hard work to try and win my place back.

“You’ve got to be absolutely honest and sincere and say that he’s doing really well. He’s put in some great performances and played some great matches.”

Liverpool are 1.30 favourites to win at Anfield, with the draw 5.25 and West Brom are as big as 9.00 win and reach the fifth round.
