Liverpool Goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher Appeared To Fall Asleep During Merseyside Derby Against Everton

Liverpool Goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher Appeared To Fall Asleep During Merseyside Derby Against Everton

Today's Merseyside derby was a pulsating affair full of controversial and incidents but not everyone was too invested in the game.

Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher looked to be asleep on the bench during the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

Cameras picked up the 21-year-old, now Liverpool's second-choice goalkeeper following the injury suffered by Alisson Becker, but he really didn't appear too interested in what was going on.

While Jurgen Klopp was looking animated as ever on the touchline prior to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's equaliser, it seemed as though the Irishman was catching some beauty sleep.

Liverpool thought they had snatched a 3-2 win over their rivals when captain Jordan Henderson pounced in stoppage time but the goal was chalked off after VAR deemed Sadio Mane's elbow to have been offside in the build-up to the strike.

That was just a few minutes after Richarlison was sent off for a horror challenge on Thiago Alcantara, following up Jordan Pickford's shocking tackle on Virgil van Dijk that went unpunished in the first half.

Pickford charged out of his box and collided with van Dijk in a scissors motion, who was forced off with an injury and replaced by Joe Gomez.

While the challenge could quite easily have been worthy of a red card, the fact that Dutch defender Van Dijk was penalised for offside by his arm in the initial phase of play meant Pickford was let off the hook.

It was also not adjudged to have been a display of violent conduct.
