However, Mignolet remains Klopp’s first choice for cup competitions, with Tuesday night’s quarter-final his next opportunity to impress.
Speaking at Melwood on Monday afternoon, Klopp said that “Simon will play if nothing happens, 100 percent.”
The ex-Black Cats stopper is likely to be one of a number of changes on Tuesday night, with Klopp having made 11 alterations for the previous round against Spurs.
However, as he continued he was reluctant to concede whether he would follow the same route against Leeds.
“The plan is to find a lineup to win the game tomorrow,” he insisted.
“We don’t want to rest somebody who doesn’t need a rest.”
Woodburn, who shone under Klopp during pre-season, looks to be edging closer to the first-team setup, though the German was coy when asked whether the 17-year-old could make his full debut against Leeds.
“Ben is a wonderful boy, but I’m not sure,” he explained.
“There are a lot of signs, very positive signs. Not just with him, but others too.
“Sometimes we have to show it. It was a good moment, not only for Ben but all the other boys in the academy. There is a way.
“As long as you’re here, train hard, work hard, everything can be possible.”
