The 2-0 win away to Salzburg had its nervy moments, but Liverpool’s quality shone through as the defence of their crown continues to gather momentum.
Next up is Watford this weekend, with the Hornets currently propping up the rest of the league, earning just nine points all season – 37 points less than Liverpool.
Despite the visitors’ struggles, this is a game where Liverpool must remain focused.
Dejan Lovren has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, having limped off in his last two outings for the Reds.
Klopp has an otherwise available squad to choose from, though, with plenty of options in midfield and attacking areas, in particular.
Liverpool’s Starting XI vs. Watford
Klopp has made a point of saying that he will make constant alterations to his starting lineups in December, given the relentless nature of Liverpool’s fixtures.
That being said, the Reds don’t play again until Wednesday – the youngsters will face Aston Villa the previous day – and even that will be against potentially weaker opposition in the Club World Cup semi-final.
This means Klopp can potentially go as full-strength as possible as his team look to open up an 11-point lead over Leicester.
In midfield, Klopp has decisions to make, however.
Naby Keita is also excelling, and while there may be a temptation to play him again, giving him a rest would be a wise move.
The trio have all had enough rest recently to have enough in their tank against the league’s bottom-place team.
Alisson; Trent, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Milner; Salah, Mane, Firmino
Although a number of those mentioned above pick themselves, Klopp’s penchant for December rotation means Liverpool’s starting lineup could easily look different.
A change to the back-line would be a genuine surprise, as would starting Henderson for a third time in seven days, but Keita could retain his place.
The Guinean has found a genuine rhythm for one of the first times in his Reds career and the manager may feel taking him out of the side will disrupt that.
Firmino arguably looks Liverpool’s most leggy player at the moment, with the Brazilian a long way from his very best.
If one player in the front-three was to make way it would likely be him, allowing cult hero Origi another opportunity to thrive.
Alisson; Trent, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Mane, Origi
This is another big game in the Premier League title race – Liverpool will be expected to win comfortably meaning all the pressure is on the Reds.
Whoever Klopp picks needs to avoid the Saturday lunchtime malaise that can sometimes take place, putting further pressure on their title rivals.
Once the game is done and dusted, Liverpool’s attention will turn to League Cup and Club World Cup duties next week.
The Reds don’t play again in the league until Boxing Day, when a huge clash with Leicester takes place at the King Power Stadium.
