Following Leicester’s 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday, the Reds need to take all three points off United to ensure they remain in the hunt for a top-four place.
Liverpool are, surprisingly, the most in-form side in the top flight at present, having taken 14 points from their last six league games, and that bodes well ahead of their journey to Manchester.
Having not won away to United since March 2014, however, it will clearly take a strong side to secure victory.
“The moment when the boys show up in training, when they have the momentum in training and these kinds of things, then is a good moment for that,” he said.
“Rhys, for example, is now in a really good moment. That helps obviously.
“Who will line up, we have a session this afternoon and what this season taught us is don’t fix the lineup too early in your mind, because something could happen that you have to change!”
Liverpool’s XI vs. Man United
Given his suggestion that Williams could keep his place despite a step up in calibre of opposition, it is likely that Klopp could name an unchanged back five at Old Trafford.
However, there is a chance that Klopp does not fully trust Williams for this game, which could see Fabinho forced back into defence.
With Liverpool needing to secure the win at all costs, fielding all four of Salah, Firmino, Mane and Jota would not be the worst idea, and it could see the Reds take to the field like this:
Given the venue and the opposition, Klopp is likely to remain conservative in his selection, and this would suggest Fabinho is required as protection in midfield.
This would arguably be the most sensible course of action, with consistency important as Liverpool look for a vital three points to keep their chances of a top-four finish alive.
