Quansah is one of three players to come into the starting lineup after the international break, with the 20-year-old making his full debut.
It was a surprise development when the teamsheet was released at Molineux, but comes after an impressive pre-season and two substitute appearances already this campaign.
Speaking to BBC Sport prior to kickoff, Klopp revealed that, with Konate only having returned from a hamstring injury earlier in the week, the decision was made not to “force it.”
“We tust him so I hope he can enjoy it.”
"I think it makes most sense when we deal with it pretty naturally."

In a pre-match interview with TNT Sports, Klopp admitted that it was a “pretty big” occasion for the academy graduate, but backed Quansah to shine.
“I think it’s pretty big, but we try to make as little of it as possible,” he said.
“I think he showed now, [he did] in pre-season anyway, but in the two games when he came on how good a player he is.
“So I think it makes most sense when we deal with it pretty naturally.
“We didn’t speak a lot, I just put him in the team yesterday and let him go. Now let’s hope that he can enjoy it!”
Quansah, who was born in Warrington, joined Liverpool as a five-year-old and has made swift progress through the ranks in recent years.
