The Reds take on David Moyes’ side at Anfield in a 3pm kickoff (GMT), looking to maintain their fight at the top of the league, having relinquished their lead last weekend.
Klopp saw his side failed to breach Southampton‘s stoic defensive line at St Mary’s, but was clearly still content with what he saw, as evidenced by his team selection against the Black Cats.
Having gone 40 league games without naming an unchanged side, Klopp kept faith in his previous lineup, partly enforced by the ongoing absence of Adam Lallana.
Klopp left it late to make any substitutions against the Saints, and Divock Origi will be hoping to be given more time to make an impact from the bench this time around.
Daniel Sturridge, however, misses out, after suffering a minor calf strain in the week.
Seventeen-year-old academy forward Woodburn makes his first appearance on the substitutes’ bench, and could go on to make his debut for the club after impressing Klopp during pre-season.
Liverpool: Karius; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Can; Mane, Coutinho, Firmino
Substitutes: Mignolet, Klavan, Lucas, Moreno, Ejaria, Origi, Woodburn
Sunderland: Pickford; Jones, Kone, O’Shea, Van Aanholt; Watmore, N’Dong, Denayer, Pienaar; Defoe, Anichebe
Substitutes: Mannone, Manquillo, Love, Januzaj, Larsson, Khazri, Gooch
