Does the Dutch boss already have to radically rethink his tactical plans?
Palace, though, will arrive with some quiet confidence even after the Huddersfield defeat.
"When there is no other possible decision, on August 31 (closing date of the market), then we will think about what to do".
"Everybody can now see how good Robbo - with a few more sessions - can be, especially in offensive situations". But is that style suited to the team?
"We didn't score but we didn't give counter attacks away".
Meanwhile Liverpool conceded three goals at Watford last weekend and were widely criticised for defensive laxity.
Andy Robertson, making his Liverpool debut, immediately threatened for the home side, delivering a decent cross that just lacked somebody clinical enough to finish it off.
Liverpool are reportedly furious about the whole saga, and have slammed Barca, bluntly telling them to not bother coming back.
Big things are also hoped for new striker Dom Solanke.
As that saga rumbles on, Coutinho remains out of contention with a back injury.
Meanwhile, Klopp expects to welcome Daniel Sturridge back into the fold after he returned to full training.
Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer speaking to Sky Sports: "We played nearly 90 minutes very solid".
The Reds began new season with old habits - dropping points against much weaker opponents. "Nearly everybody [else] is fit but maybe not to play 90 minutes for example, Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur".
Despite not enjoying the best form for the Reds during his time at Liverpool, Christian Benteke went into today's clash with plenty of confidence.
