Moreno scored in the 60th minute of Liverpool's 3-0 thrashing of Tottenham on Saturday, while also picking up his first clean sheet of the season.

Moreno put his skills on display with an incredible run down the left side, before drilling the ball across the goal and into the back of the net. The young Spaniard has significant fantasy upside with his ability to get involved in the high-powered Liverpool attack.

Moreno (ankle) has been "recovering well this week" according to manager Brendan Rodgers and may return in time for Liverpool's clash with Tottenham on Sunday.

Moreno had an erratic debut, making a few errors to go with an excellent last man tackle. The young Spaniard will need some time to adjust to the Premier League and forge a defensive partnership with fellow new signing Dejan Lovren.

Moreno left Etihad Stadium following Monday's loss to Manchester City limping and with his right ankle heavily taped, according to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo.

Moreno got his first start at leftback for Liverpool on Monday, while pushing Glen Johnson over to the right side. He was brought in to help sure up a leaky back line, although next weekend's trip to White Hart Lane isn't a great one from a fantasy perspective in terms of a clean sheet.

Moreno will be in the squad for Liverpool's upcoming clash with Manchester City, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Moreno, as expected, will be in the squad against Manchester City on Monday and may very well make the Liverpool starting XI. If the young Spainard starts at left back, it becomes unclear who mans the right side, with a competition between veteran Glen Johnson and new signing Javier Manquillo. Regardless, starting any Liverpool defender this week against the champions Manchester City is risky business, and should be avoided if possible.

Moreno is officially a Red after completing a move to Liverpool from Spanish side Sevilla on Saturday.

Moreno has finally completed his transfer to Merseyside, and after comments from manager Brandan Rodgers stating that the 22-year-old is "ready to come in and contribute straight away", it appears to be only a matter of time until Moreno is the nailed on left back at Anfield. This will push Glen Johnson into a competition for time at right back with new signing Javier Manquillo, and local boy John Flanagan. Moreno was not registered in time for Liverpool's season opener against Southampton, but will be in the squad for next week's clash with Manchester City.

Moreno will not be available to play in Liverpool's season opener against Southampton on Sunday, James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo reports.

Because Moreno's paperwork was not registered in time, he'll have to sit out this weekend. Moreno, who should immediately slot in as the starting left back for Liverpool, should be good to go for Manchester City on Aug. 25.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Moreno looks to be finally headed to Merseyside as Liverpool have confirmed an agreement has been reached with Spanish side Sevilla over the transfer of the 22-year-old left back.

Moreno has been linked with Liverpool all summer and it has now been confirmed manager Brendan Rodgers finally got his man. The Spanish international will likely be the first-choice left back, over compatriot Jose Enrique, and will look to show the Premier League why he is rated as one of the best young defenders in Europe. Assuming Moreno firmly establishes himself in the starting XI, he has significant fantasy appeal in the new-look Liverpool defense.
