Former Liverpool and Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy says Jurgen Klopp "could finish" Alberto Moreno if the Reds defender is dropped for Chelsea's visit to Anfield on 25 November.

The Merseyside club enter the weekend Premier League clash after being forced to settle for a 3-3 draw against Sevilla in the Champions League clash in Andalusia. Liverpool surrendered a three-goal lead at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and also missed a chance to seal the qualification to the knockout stages.

Moreno was at fault for two of Sevilla's goals on his return to his former club. The former Borussia Dortmund took him off the pitch and replaced him with James Milner, who was the first choice left-back for the Anfield club last season.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane slammed Moreno after claiming the Spain international will cost points for Liverpool. 25-year-old Moreno told IBTimes UK in a detailed interview how he convinced Klopp that his future lies with the Reds, which has seen him revive his Liverpool career.

Bellamy remains hopeful Moreno can replicate the form from earlier this season, if Klopp starts him against Antonio Conte's side.

"If Klopp drops him for the Chelsea game, it could finish him — it would mean that the German lost a lot of faith in him. I wouldn't drop him for that one though," Bellamy told Paddy Power.

"I'd say: 'Okay, you've had one blip but you've done well this season. Now it's up to you to show the form you've had earlier in the year'. He needs to prove that Sevilla was just one of those days and kick on again.

"Alberto Moreno has always made mistakes and everyone, including myself, has questioned his defensive ability. He's certainly never convinced me that he's sound enough back there."

"To be fair to him, he's started well this year, but Tuesday was a bad day for him — it was like the old Moreno of the last few years," Bellamy said.

"That was disappointing for him because, when it happens, people's minds immediately go back to the last few years when he was constantly making errors. Unfortunately for him, he took a big step backwards on Tuesday."
