Liverpool made short work of Stoke City’s poor defence as they beat the Potters 3-0 away from home in the Barclays Premier League.

Superstar (is it safe to call him that yet) Mohamed Salah swept home two more goals, while his partner in crime Sadio Mane grabbed the opener after good work by Dominic Solanke.

Solanke made his first league start of the campaign on Wednesday night in a move that surely pushes Daniel Sturridge closer to the exit door.

But it was another player who picked up many plaudits from Red fans. Alberto Moreno, who came under heavy criticism for his performance against Sevilla.

After he posted a message on Twitter after the game, the 25-year-old was praised to the hilt in a moment that shows the hypocrisy of football.

While a week ago fans were demanding that Moreno was dropped in favour of Andrew Robertson, on Wednesday night they were lauding in his success and improvement.

With a WhoScored.com rating on 7.7, there can be no denial that the Spaniard had a good game and deserves to be congratulated.

But perhaps those who were so quick to criticise should be a little bit more circumspect the next time they rally against a poor performance.

But for now, scroll down and read the tweets of praise for Moreno, who will certainly be a lot happier after the Stoke game than he was last week.

Liverpool next take on Brighton and Hove Albion, before hosting Spartak Moscow in a must-win Champions League clash on Wednesday night.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is starting to rotate the team around more, as can be seen by Solanke and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starting the game – but who will he pick for the next two fixtures?
