The Reds gave themselves a headache that they really didn’t need after they were humiliated 7-2 by Aston Villa before the international break. Second-choice shot-stopper Adrian stepped in for Alisson Becker, who was ruled out for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury,
After the final whistle, the Spaniard was lambasted by the Kop faithful and the break in Premier League proceedings could not have come at a worse time for manager Jurgen Klopp.
With the Merseyside Derby just around the corner at Goodison Park, questions remain as to who will start in between the sticks across Stanley Park following Adrian’s horror show.
Achterberg may have provided a clue, telling Sunday World that the feeling inside the club is Kelleher is “one of our three” good goalkeepers, adding that he would have “no issue” putting him in a game and he could make his debut earlier than anticipated.
Do Liverpool need to sign a new goalkeeper before Friday's deadline?
This did not go down well with a one segment of the Anfield faithful though, who don’t rate the ability that Kelleher brings to the table, as you can see below.
Kelleher not liked by these Liverpool fans
Three good goalies… get looking because we need two more.

Him and Adrian are both dead. They won’t make it here. Promote Pitgula and get a better 2nd keeper. https://t.co/bzlwV7srKF

If we need 3 good goalies then we need to buy atleast 2 because the current ones apart from Alisson are an absolute joke just like Achterberg himself. https://t.co/kq0m1nlDRm
