‘Really good’: Jurgen Klopp seriously impressed with how calm his £20m Liverpool player was today



The Reds scored twice in the second 45 minutes to record a 3-1 win and make it back to the top of the table after Man City had won earlier in the day.


For Liverpool, getting those three points was massive and Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota once again came up with the goals to help them over the line.


However, speaking about others in his team, Jurgen Klopp felt it was the performance of stand-in goalkeeper Kelleher that deserved a mention.


Jurgen Klopp praises Caoimhin Kelleher

Kelleher was asked to come into the team to fill in for Alisson Becker, who pulled out of the team at the last minute.


And speaking to Liverpool’s official media channels after the game, Klopp felt Kelleher’s calmness was vital for his team in big moments.


Burnley gave problems and we had to score at the right moments. We needed Caoimhín Kelleher as it was a really good game for him. He was calm on the ball for us,” Klopp said.


Kelleher would start for most other teams

Well, outside of the top six anyway, in the main. Kelleher is a top quality goalkeeper and there is a reason why Liverpool demanded around £20m to even consider selling in the summer.


Any goalkeeper stepping into the shoes of Alisson is always going to have pressure and Kelleher dealt with things very well today when Burnley did threaten.


Over a season, it can’t be understated how important having a top number two is and it showed for Liverpool today.


At the end of the day, it is about winning as a squad and Kelleher has come in, done the business, and helped his team to three points.


Klopp, then, knows full well he can trust his number two in the future.
