​Lijnders remains coy on which Liverpool keeper will start against Arsenal

Liverpool assistant boss Pep Lijnders would not be drawn on who he will play at goalkeeper against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi final second leg.

The Reds have very good keepers in their squad, and may rotate to give their second or third choice shot stopper game time.

Alisson is their number one, while Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher are two valid options as well.

Asked about the keeper situation, Lijnders said: “What’s good is that we have three really good goalkeepers. Adrian, every time he needed to come in, he saved us. Caoimhin, massive talent – you cannot call him a talent anymore.

“He has all the characteristics we want from a Liverpool Football Club goalkeeper. He’s calm, he can play, amazing shot-stopper, has the personality to not be involved for 60 minutes and then has to make a crucial save, he’s somebody who can play with a lot of space in front of him – what happens a lot with our last line and the way we want to apply pressure on the opposition.

“And then we have Ali, and nothing to say. He’s our Brazilian cat and he’s everything you want from a goalkeeper. For me, he’s the best goalkeeper in the world. We’re really happy with all three of them. Let’s see tomorrow who’s going to start but I’m sure all three would do well.”
