Liverpool continues to be rocked by injuries and this has meant that Jürgen Klopp has had to turn to youth players to cover for the loss of some players through injury, which is certainly opening up great opportunities for everyone, both for youth players and for players who have not been so regular. So their level has increased and this helps a lot to the level that is maintained in Liverpool.

Now after the injury to Alisson Becker, who could be out for the rest of the year, this is a great opportunity to give a chance to the other goalkeepers and while the Irishman Caoimhín Kelleher has been the second most active goalkeeper at Anfield, where he has been in charge of goalkeeping during the cups, playing a total of five games between Europa League and EFL Cup.

So now Spanish goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel, who has not played a single game this season, could be put to the test. However, the long-awaited debut of youth goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga, who joined Liverpool in 2020, could also be on the cards. So a Brazilian could replace another Brazilian, which could be the start of a great career at Anfield for another South American.

Pitaluga is 20 years old and was on loan with Macclesfield from mid-2022 to the end of 2023, however he had to return later due to an ankle injury. He is now ready to be a suitable replacement for his compatriot Becker. So Klopp would already have a decision on the youngster in order to convince Klopp and be taken into account more.

Competitiveness at Anfield continues to grow

With Alisson's injury, it leaves the door open for Klopp to choose a back-up goalkeeper, not an easy task, as the players have shown a high level, and now it is the turn of the goalkeepers. So this month it will be crucial that the goalkeepers make as few mistakes as possible so that Alisson's injury does not affect the team's performance.
