LIVERPOOL – Goalkeeper LiverpoolCaoimhin Kelleher was caught on camera looking asleep when his team competed against their city rivals, Everton. The Reds’ third goalkeeper was seen sleeping on the bench when his coach Jurgen Klopp was in front of him.
Liverpool in the fifth week of the Premier League 2020-2021 visited the Goodison Park Stadium on Saturday, October 17 2020. They came with shame after being destroyed by Aston Villa with a score of 7-2.
Sadio Mane managed to take advantage of Everton’s weak defense at the start of the match. The Liverpool winger scored after receiving an excellent pass from Andrew Robertson.
Everton managed to excel in equalizing the score in the 19th minute. The goal came from a corner taken by James Rodriguez, who was refined by Michael Keane with a header that Adrian couldn’t anticipate, who replaced Liverpool’s main goalkeeper, Allison Becker, who was injured.
Mohamed Salah managed to bring Liverpool ahead again in the 72nd minute. This goal became the 100th goal for the Egyptian player with the Reds.
As the Liverpoll squad tried to hold on to victory, the camera shone on Klopp. However, it was not the German who made the spotlight, but Kelleher who was behind him.
The Irish goalkeeper seemed to be asleep. His head fell back to the right and his mouth was slightly open. Meanwhile, Klopp focuses on watching his team play.
While trying to keep the victory, Liverpool conceded instead. Dominic Calvert-Lewin managed to score with a header after receiving feedback from Lucas Digne in the 81st minute.
The Reds were actually 3-2 ahead before the match ended with a goal from their captain, Jordan Henderson in the 90th minute. However, the referee revised his decision after seeing the video assistant referee (VAR) re-recording. The referee stated that Sadio Mane’s position was offside before sending the pass to Henderson.
“The game was brilliant but it’s over, we got one point, should we get three? Maybe so, but we can’t change that anymore. But that’s the situation. I can’t change that, “Klopp said in his post-match press conference.
