The Reds travel to Pride Park for their third-round tie, looking to build on an excellent start to the 2016/17.
This will be aided by the return of Firmino, who sat out at Stamford Bridge with a minor injury, with Klopp telling reporters on Monday that “he’s in.”
“Roberto is in training, we checked him yesterday, and today again,” he explained at Melwood.
“He could have played [against Chelsea], but I heard the word risk too often, so I said ‘no’.
“We said give him three days then everything will be perfect—today is the fourth day, so he’s in.”
As he continued to detail, the German is looking to field a “strong lineup,” only omitting players who aren’t at “100 percent” following victory on Friday.
“In my opinion we only have strong lineups, so you can be sure we’ll find a strong lineup again,” he added.
“If a player after the Spurs game had a little bit of an issue, of course we didn’t risk him [for Burton Albion in the second round].
“But it’s not about resting 100-percent-fit players.
“It’s a normal rhythm (to play midweek and weekend), it’s a rhythm we want to have next season again, with games every three or four days.
“We know how to handle it, we know about recovery. It’s about taking risks, but not with players who aren’t 100 percent.
“We have to wait a little bit, the session this afternoon will be important.”
