The Spanish full-back, who has impressed in recent weeks, was caught ball-watching at the back post as Ramires stole in to head home Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross.
Taking to Twitter, moments after Liverpool went a goal down to Jose Mourinho’s side, Carragher wrote: “Lots from Moreno on [Brendan] Rodgers this week, the goal showing why Rodgers stopped picking him.”

Earlier this week, Moreno had told reporters that he felt an “inner rage” towards Rodgers after losing his place in the first team to youngster Joe Gomez.
“It never entered my head that I was going to leave, I am staying here, that is for sure, but I was angry when I was out the team,” Moreno was quoted as saying by the Guardian. “I had this inner anger, a rage almost. I felt I was playing well, training well. He told me that I was training well but I couldn’t see why I wasn’t getting a chance at the beginning of the season.”
Liverpool fans hit back at Carragher
Rather surprisingly, many Liverpool fans hit back at the Anfield legend in the replies section. It seems not all were in agreement with the current Sky Sports pundit.
Philippe Coutinho equalised for the visitors towards the end of the first half, prompting Carragher to tweet: “Brilliant that from Coutinho.”
But it seems the former England international is more a fan of the Brazilian, than the Spanish left-back.
