The Reds take to the East Midlands as they kick off one of two domestic cup campaigns this season, with their first of two clashes with the Foxes this week.
And Klopp remained positive when he addressed reporters at the Reds’ training ground.
He also suggested Dominic Solanke could make his full debut for the club, praising the young striker’s contribution when called upon this season so far.
“It’s exciting, absolutely exciting. I’m really happy to have him around, wonderful kid,” he said, “he takes the minutes, each minute as an opportunity.”
“Clyney, yesterday, had [his] third or fourth run outside, not the highest intensity but a big step, [and he has] coped well so far with this,” he said.
“Adam is close to going outside and running. Next step, I’ll give you another update in the next press conference!”
