The Premier League reportedly confirm that Liverpool will be unable to request an emergency loan for a goalkeeper for the Reds' FA Cup semi-final against Everton.

The Premier League have reportedly stated that Liverpool are not eligible to apply to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan basis for this weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Everton.

The Reds have been hit with a goalkeeping crisis after second-choice keeper Alexander Doni was sent off during Liverpool's 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers last night.

With Pepe Reina due to serve the third and final game of his suspension for the trip to Wembley, third-ranked goalkeeper Brad Jones, who saved a penalty from Yakubu on his first touch in last night's clash, is expected to fill the slot.

Reports have claimed that if the Merseyside club try to apply for an emergency loan they will be refused on the grounds that the policy only comes into action for injury reasons as opposed to suspensions.

It is believed that Kenny Dalglish will start with Australian Jones, choosing between teenage keepers Danny Ward and Tyrell Belford for the reserve spot.
