Ideally, Klopp would be in a position to rest a couple of key players ahead of another important Premier League clash next weekend - they travel to Wembley to face Tottenham on Sunday - but Liverpool can not afford to drop any more points and must be wary of Maribor, who are unbeaten in their domestic league.
Joe Gomez is available as the right-back returns from suspension, but he is likely to be left on the bench - having played against Manchester United on Saturday - with Jurgen Klopp set to use Trent Alexander-Arnold as he continues to rotate his young full-backs. "I said he needed a little bit of time and my most positive thing was that finally he has arrived, but it always takes time".
Klopp also spoke of the home side's "fluent play, different build-up formations" and their attempts to "find the two No.6s, playing through balls" and "stuff like this".
Luckily for Liverpool, no one team looks like running away with the group, meaning they still have a great chance of reaching the knockout stages provided they get a couple of wins under their belt, with the double-header against Maribor the ideal opportunity.
"So far it has been okay but not what we know he is able to do. I can not now mention it if I need it and then when I don't need it then I say it's not important", continued the boss. "In some moments they will be compact and together, we have to do the same".

"We have wasted points and the performances have been good".
The German manager noted that Maribor "is a top team in Maribor" and so "usually have to make the game, attack, do a lot of offensive things".
Much like in the Premier League, there's no easy matches in Europe, but with that being said, this is one that the Reds should be able to manage with the relative ease that's eluded them since they rolled Arsenal over back in August.
