Liverpool Made A Massive Blunder On Caoimhín Kelleher's Premier League Debut
Liverpool's Caoimhín Kelleher's name was spelt wrong on his Premier League debut.
Having made a crucial save to secure passage to the Champions League round of 16 in his European debut against Ajax in midweek, the Irish goalkeeper remained in between the sticks for the visit of Wolves on Sunday evening following on from Alisson Becker's hamstring injury.
And the 22-year-old kept a second consecutive clean sheet at Anfield in his first ever Premier League appearance as the Reds ran out 4-0 winners.
But while he didn't make any gaffes himself, whoever printed his shirt made an almighty one. Kelleher's surname was missing an "e" in the first half and the back of his jersey read, "Kellher 62".

At half-time, Kelleher was given a different shirt that had his name correctly spelt and he continued to impress on his first start in English football's top tier.
He can take some comfort in the fact that isn't the only player to be guilty of a misprint. England legends David Beckham and Steven Gerrard have both had to contend with it at different stages of their careers.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp waxed lyrical about the Republic of Ireland Under 21 international after another strong outing.
Speaking to Amazon Prime post-match, Klopp said: "Yes, goalkeepers are all about saves, of course, and it was brilliant, and apart from that, it's about contributions, what can he bring, involved in the game, and that makes him a really special talent because he is really calm on the ball, his personality is very calm, and technically he is outstanding with his feet."
