Just a few hours before the Carabao Cup final kicks off at Wembley, Liverpool's environment has been the most talked about with the issue of injury casualties and what will be the lineup that Klopp presents for the match, having certain hypotheses about the surprise implementation of players like Mohamed Salah or Darwin Nunez, generating thoughts about the Egyptian or the Uruguayan or could be the ones who give this club its first title of the season.

But even if there is some truth to a significant improvement with Salah or Nunez on the pitch, the club would not see these two players as the big stars of the game that could give the Merseyside institution the title, and both the German coach and the fans have a good feeling of achieving the feat with a team they see winning with the help of Kaoimhim Kelleher.

This Irish goalkeeper has been put as one of the great favorites to be the best of the match against Chelsea not only because of his great performance shown in the most recent matches with the team, but also because Kelleher is an excellent penalty taker who has already been well identified with the Blues since the final they won in the 2021-2022 edition, in which the Reds' goalkeeper scored and saved the winning shot.

Even after showing his skills in a final and being a reliable goalkeeper every time Alisson Becker is out injured, Kelleher is not considered a reliable player at least by the public, and the Irishman and Klopp himself are looking to show that his team has enough resources to beat any opponent without the need of all their stars.

In addition to the Irish goalkeeper, many people on social networks want their captain and central defender, Virgil van Dijk, to be the one to guide the group to a new trophy, with the Dutchman obtaining his first great achievement in his new position as leader of the group. It is worth remembering that during this final between Liverpool and Chelsea in the Carabao Cup two editions ago, Van Dijk was one of the great men in defense and one of the great goalkeepers who humiliated Chelsea with his collection.
