Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has been handed a start for Liverpool in tonight's Champions League clash with Ajax this evening. 

With first choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker injured, Jurgen Klopp has handed the 22-year old Corkman his debut in European competition. 

Kelleher was picked ahead of established number two Adrian to make only his fifth start for the club, the previous four being in domestic cup competitions.

The goalkeeper was one of five changes from Saturday's draw at Brighton, with Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones all returning.

Ajax's side showed just two changes from their 1-0 defeat to Liverpool in Amsterdam in the first match of the group stage, with forward Antony and midfielder Edson Alvarez starting at Anfield.
