Jurgen Klopp hints at selection change for tonight's clash with Arsenal

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Alisson Becker could come in to replace Caoimhin Kelleher in goal against Arsenal this evening in the EFL Cup.

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:

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.
