Alan Pardew will be concerned that his side remain in the Premier League relegation zone, and his approach to this cup competition could either provide a platform to push on in the league, or an unwelcome distraction.
That might prove tricky for a Liverpool side who could rest some key attacking talent ahead of Tuesday's league meeting with Huddersfield - and Klopp could be in for yet another exasperating evening.
His injuries have caught up with him rendering Sturridge to no longer be the same player that he once was. Adam Lallana has picked up another minor injury as his continues to make his way back into regular first team contention after missing the first half of the season.
"I have never in my life promised a player game time for the next few months", Klopp said. The league title is out of reach, they were knocked out of the League Cup early on, and face a tough task in the Champions League having lost their best player, Philippe Coutinho, to Barcelona.
Alberto Moreno is back in full training but will have a test before his inclusion is confirmed.
Pardew's bigger concern will likely be how his own defence copes with Liverpool's pace and movement in forward areas.

Pliskova beat No. 29 Lucie Safarova in straight sets, 7-6 (6), 7-5 while Garcia bested Aliaksandra Sasnovich , 6-3, 5-7, 6-2. After enduring a first set arm wrestle, Keys converted a fourth-break point chance at 4-3 to go ahead.
Roberto Firmino scored the opener but later missed a penalty, and West Brom quickly responded as Jay Rodriguez scored twice and contributed to a third that went down as a Joel Matip own goal.
Liverpool and Everton have been surprisingly linked with the Venezuelan in recent days, although the Baggies have received no bids for their No.9. McClean, Rodriguez, Foster, Hegazi and G-Mac, so there's a few. Following a trip to the Kirklees Stadium, the Reds will host Tottenham at Anfield as they look to both avenge their 4-1 defeat back in October and ensure they build a gap in the race to secure top four again.
"So they all have the opportunity to play to keep shape and importantly rhythm".
West Brom would want close to £20million for Rondon who has claimed 20 Premier League goals since joining from Zenit St Petersburg.
West Brom looked as if they had doubled their lead in the 19th minute, when Craig Dawson beat Simon Mignolet with a header. The Belgian had been Liverpool's first choice keeper when the season began, but after a horrendous performance against Arsenal in December, Klopp rang in the changes and has now instated Karius as his first choice shot-stopper.
'Maybe if Danny could go somewhere where he could start the next 20 games, would it be ideal for him?
