Liverpool goalkeeper Kelleher earns Klopp praise for Cup win

Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has earned praise from Jurgen Klopp after his debut against MK Dons on Wednesday night.

The 20-year-old kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 win to help Liverpool book their place in the Carabao Cup fourth-round.

"To be honest, these games are there for the young players to show what they can do but, for a goalkeeper, it is quite difficult to do that in a game like this.

"But Caoimhin Kelleher, him being there, having not a lot to do in the whole game and then making these type of saves was absolutely brilliant. So I am happy about that."
