The eight o’clock kickoff, the only game taking place in the competition on Tuesday, is an exciting encounter between two teams who have showed flashes of greatness mixed with moments of madness so far this season.
Only one point separates the two sides in the Premier League and it is set to be an unpredictable clash – made even more so by the nature of cup football.
Klopp’s side are narrow favourites to take the victory and advantage heading into the second leg but, in truth, almost anything could happen in this one.
A familiar but depressing injury storyline is making the headlines once again – Daniel Sturridge will not play a part in the Stoke game due to injury.
This is maddening for both manager Klopp and Liverpool fans alike as Sturridge has looked deadly when fit.
He had been expected to play for Liverpool but has suffered a “setback” and the team are keen to risk avoiding something more long term by playing him too soon.
It remains to be seen who will start up front for Liverpool but summer signing Christian Benteke is a strong possibility.
It will fall to in form Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross to handle Benteke if he is given the starting job.
Liverpool will also have to make do without the services of Jordan Henderson, who has a foot problem, and James Milner, who is suffering from calf trouble.
The home team are looking a lot healthier than the visitors with only a few injury problems to contend with as their foreign imports are really starting to gel for Mark Hughes.
The Stoke faithful has been treated to some remarkable football in recent weeks, with Bojan, Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri all showing signs of quality, although defeat at West Brom last week will have left Potters fans scratching their heads.
Phil Bardsley suffered an injury during training and may not be ready to face Liverpool as a result and keeper Shay Given remains out of contention for selection due to a knee injury.
Stoke fans are rejoicing at the news that Geoff Cameron will be available to play against Liverpool.
The popular American striker had been sent off in a weekend contest against West Brom for an incident involving Claudio Yacob, but has had his ban overturned on appeal.
Both teams suffered defeats in the Premier League to begin 2016 and both will be looking to reverse the losing momentum on Tuesday evening.
Under Klopp, Liverpool have been inconsistent, sometimes looking very threatening and other times uninspired.
Stoke were having a great run of form prior to their most recent loss – including big wins against Everton, Man Utd and Man City.
The Britannia Stadium support could well be enough to see Stoke heading into the second leg at Anfield with an advantage.
