Moreno aiming to pay back Pool fans

Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno admits he had a point to prove after a less-than-satisfying debut for his new club.

The Spaniard was at fault for Manchester City's opener in the 3-1 defeat last week but he responded with a brilliant 60-yard run to score the Reds' third in Sunday's victory at Tottenham.

He considers that to be the initial down payment towards him clearing his debt from the loss at the Etihad Stadium.

"After making my debut and losing against City I had a point to make," he said.

"When I stole the ball from (Andros) Townsend and saw a way through, all I could think about was getting to their goal and scoring. I didn't care how many metres I had to run.

"I hope it isn't my only one as I hope to dedicate many more to Liverpool's fans."
