The Reds and the Gunners meet at Anfield this evening for the first leg of the semi-final tie, with it being postponed of course from last week.
Indeed, there's a hope that a strong Reds side can be fielded now because of that postponement and we may even see Alisson come into the line-up at the expense of Kelleher.
The Irishman has been our stopper for EFL Cup games this season and in the recent past, but Klopp has suggested that policy may change tonight:

Anfield Watch Verdict
Alisson and Kelleher are both top goalkeepers and both would deserve to start this game.
Whoever played, you would expect them to put in a good performance but it perhaps makes sense that the Reds are going to try and get Alisson back in amongst it after a little period out thanks to covid.
Whether that means he starts the second leg next week at the Emirates, meanwhile, remains to be seen.
