The Reds booked their place in the fourth round with a 4-1 victory over an Aston Villa side comprised of players from their academy due to an outbreak of COVID-19 among the first team.
Sadio Mane scored twice while Gini Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah also found the back of the net in a game Liverpool were expected to dominate, but were given a first-half scare through Louie Barry’s equaliser.
The FA Cup is, it is safe to say, far down Klopp’s list of priorities, but the fourth round provides an opportunity for the club’s youngsters to impress on the senior stage.

How have Liverpool fared in the fourth round in recent years?
Last season was the first time Liverpool have progressed beyond the fourth round since Klopp took over in 2015, with the Reds needing a replay to beat League One side Shrewsbury.
After a 2-2 draw at New Meadow, Neil Critchley led a young side out at Anfield due to the first team’s winter break, with Neco Williams‘ cross diverted in for a Ro-Shaun Williams own goal and a 1-0 victory.
Liverpool have used 63 different players in the FA Cup since Klopp’s appointment, with Divock Origi (nine appearances) the most-used while Roberto Firmino (eight), James Milner (seven), Joe Gomez and Kevin Stewart (both six) round off the top five.
