Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp remains unmoved on the injury situation regarding Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher.

The Irish shot-stopper missed the Reds' pre-season fixtures and also the Community Shield final - a game that Kelleher would have started in.

Klopp put the blame on the Republic of Ireland setup for not spotting Kelleher's groin injury while on international duty in June's UEFA Nations League fixtures, but manager Stephen Kenny insisted that the Cork native was not carrying a knock.
