Kelleher’s shootout saves see Liverpool scrape past Derby in Carabao Cup

Caoimhín Kelleher started this season’s Carabao Cup where he left off last time out, emerging as Liverpool’s saviour in a penalty shootout as Jürgen Klopp’s much-changed team scraped past League One Derby on a tense night at Anfield.The Republic of Ireland goalkeeper produced three fine saves in the shootout to thwart Conor Hourihane, Craig Forsyth and the on-loan Everton striker Lewis Dobbin after a goalless 90 minutes. Harvey Elliott sealed the holders’ place in round four after 18-year-old Stefan Bajcetic and Roberto Firmino had failed to convert for Liverpool, and Darwin Núñez only just managed to beat Joe Wildsmith in the Derby goal, but this was all about Kelleher’s penalty prowess once again.
