Ozan Kabak overcame injury to play the full 90 minutes against RB Leipzig in midweek as the Reds marched into the Champions League quarter-finals.
Fabinho was able to return to midfield, with Liverpool’s more resolute display unlikely to have been a coincidence.
With the security he offers as one of the best in the world in that job, according to Klopp, allowed other players to flourish.
Not least Thiago Alcantara, who has struggled in the Premier League since arriving in September from Bayern Munich due to after effects of Covid-19 and a knee injury.
Up front, Roberto Firmino is a doubt with a knee injury, meaning Diogo Jota should continue to deputise between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Liverpool predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Jota, Salah, Mane
Liverpool squad from: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Fabinho, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Keita, Salah, Mane, Jota, Adrian, N Williams, R Williams, Davies, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Shaqiri, Firmino, Origi.
