Caoimhin Kelleher is set to make his first Liverpool appearance of the season against Leeds United, the Irish Independent report.

They suggest that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will turn to the 22-year-old, with Alisson suspended.

The Brazilian FA have called on FIFA to enforce a ban on players who did not turn up to their recent international.

Liverpool are now set to be without Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino – although the latter is nursing an injury anyway.

Leeds, meanwhile, could also be without Raphinha – in what looks like a blow for both teams.

When Alisson was injured the young stopper stepped in and looked a reliable presence in goal.

His performances saw him move ahead of the likes of Adrian and Loris Karius in the pecking order, and it seems that he remains Liverpool’s second choice now.

Liverpool go into this weekend’s game having taken seven points from the first nine available, while Leeds are still looking for their first win.
