It speaks to the quality of Caoimhin Kelleher that, at some point, Liverpool’s back-up goalkeeper is going to have a difficult decision to make.

But it is also widely accepted that he will not fulfil that huge promise by sitting on the bench waiting for rare opportunities to deputise for Alisson Becker.
