Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker could be fit to face Fulham this weekend, according to reports in the English media.
The Brazilian has missed the last two games against Ajax and Wolves with a hamstring injury but reserve keeper Caoimhin Kelleher has performed very well as his understudy, leaving a number supporters on Twitter rather unconcerned about the big injury news:
No point in rushing him. Kelleher is doing o.k.

Pointless for him when we’ve got the Finlay Oliver Kahn

No point hurrying him into the team. Our backup C.K is doing well

Why? Is Kelleher injured? ;P

Alisson is a world-class keeper so it will be a big boost to have him back whenever he is fit, but Kelleher’s impressive displays have definitely caught the attention of Reds fans, who have seen him keep two clean sheets in a row.
It’s quite remarkable considering the fact that, just over a week ago, the 22-year-old conceded seven goals playing for the Under 23s. He will almost certainly be in goal when Liverpool face FC Midtjylland on Wednesday night but it seems it could now be his last game for a while.
