Liverpool bounced back to winning ways at the Amex stadium on Saturday afternoon by beating Brighton and Hove Albion by a goal to nil kind courtesy Mohammed Salah who made no mistake from the penalty spot.
Klopp made changes to his centre back pairings as Fabinho was asked to play as a makeshift centre back for the second game in a row due to injuries while Shaqiri also made the first XI ahead of James Milner.
Chris Hughton also made one change from their last Premier League game as Bong replaced Bernardo.
Liverpool were frustrated in the first half as they found the resolute Brighton defense difficult to breakdown.
They had to wait until the 50th minute in the second half for a breakthrough as Pascal Gross made a clumsy challenge on Salah and the reigning African Player of the Year carefully dispatched the ball into the back of the net which later turned out to be the only goal of the game.
Liverpool have now moved 7 points clear of the top of the table as they wait for title rivals Tottenham and Manchester City who play on Sunday and Monday night respectively.
