Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will go with "outstanding" Caoimhin Kelleher in next month's Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

The Irish goalkeeper started Thursday night's semi-final second leg against Arsenal, and kept a clean sheet in the Reds' 2-0 victory.

Regular Reds stopper Alisson Becker had started the first leg against the Gunners, but Klopp would later confirm that that decision was made to simply give the Brazilian some match practice.

“Caoimhin will play, if he is fit," said Klopp on Friday.

“We consider Caoimhin as an outstanding goalie. Not a good goalie, an outstanding goalie, and we want to keep him here.

“And to keep him here you need to make sure of a few things. Before a season you need to think and talk about about the different games he will get.

“It is all about performing of course. If he didn't perform on the level he performed when he played then I would maybe think differently.

“But he has shown he deserves all the trust and faith that we have in him. So that is the situation."
