Liverpool’s assistant manager Pep Lijnders has confirmed that Caoimhín Kelleher will be given the nod to start against Arsenal on Wednesday, leaving some fans in shock.
His involvement means that Adrian will miss out, and given Alisson has taken his place for league games, the Spaniard will likely be feeling disappointed.

Some supporters disagree with the decision, and think that the keeper can consider himself very unlucky to be missing out.
His form explains why they feel that way, as he certainly wasn’t dropped due to poor performance. He conceded just six goals in eight league games, with 1.5 saves per match too, and therefore relying on a 20-year-old ahead of him is a risky call by Klopp.
It will be a brilliant opportunity for Kelleher to show what he can do against better opposition, but Adrian’s absence has baffled several supporters, with one insinuating that a player of his quality deserves better treatment.
Here are some of the reactions to the news that Kelleher will be handed a start.
Adrian left twiddling his thumbs then
