After a slow start, Liverpool kicked into gear as Mohamed Salah nipped the ball back in the final third before laying it into the path of Sadio Mane, who was adjudged to have been fouled in the penalty area.
But Fabinho, stepping up for his first spot-kick for the club after scoring 19 and missing just one for Monaco, was unable to convert, sending his low effort wide of the post.
But Salah created a goal soon after, with Roberto Firmino cutting back onto his right foot in the box and finding the back of the net via a deflection.
Firmino then took over as provider, supplying another excellent through ball for Georginio Wijnaldum, who ghosted through from the No. 8 to slot past Salvatore Sirigu from a tight angle.
Klopp made seven changes at the break, with Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Phillips and Fabinho the only players to remain on the field from the first half, the latter slotting in at centre-back.
One of those brought on, Danny Ings, came close to adding a third on the hour mark, but his scuffed effort was cleared off the line.
