Diego Cavalieri and Peter Gulacsi have both stated their intent to become Liverpool's No.1 goalkeeper.
Spain international Jose Reina has been manager Rafa Benitez's first-choice shot-stopper since he arrived at the club in 2005.
However, Cavalieri, who signed at Anfield from Palmeiras this summer, is seeking further first-team opportunities after making his competitive debut in the Carling Cup win over Crewe on Tuesday.
The Brazilian told the club's official website: "I am happy that I played my part and helped Liverpool to leave the field with the victory.
"I always respect and accept any decision of the coach, but I will be always ready to perform when the chance emerges."
Meanwhile, Gulacsi, who joined the Merseyside outfit permanently in the recent transfer window, is also keen to taste first-team action after starting on the bench against Crewe.
The 18-year-old told Pepsifoci: "It was a fantastic evening. For me it was a great experience. I enjoyed every minute of it.
"I will continue to work very hard and make my debut in the senior team as soon as possible."
