"It's about positioning, reaction, spaces - defensively closing them and offensively using them".

"One change I have already confirmed, so it can not be nil changes, and it will for sure not be 11".

"But it will happen, it's not really hard".

Klopp feels his so-called "lesser" players can still get the job, and after all games like this are one of the reasons he has added to the depth of his squad.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he will play a "really strong side" for the cup fixture but the inclusion of Mignolet was the only change he confirmed at his pre-match news conference.

"Only three, four, five weeks sound, in football, like a really long period. That's it, nothing else".
