Although Jurgen Klopp will be curious as to why his side couldn't convert more of the many chances they created, the closing five minutes of today's game very almost undone what was a landmark win for Klopp's side.
"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if you're already out of the competition almost, or if it's late in the season and you see you have a chance to do that or this". Simon Mignolet has been replaced in goal by the £66 million summer signing Alisson Becker, while Lovren, Joel Matip and Alberto Moreno have all been dislodged in the months since. There are lots of games ahead.
Son Heung-min is back and on the bench, alongside Paulo Gazzaniga, Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Victor Wanyama and Erik Lamela.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes too much demand is placed on global stars who have had barely any rest following the World Cup. Klopp has identified weaknesses in goal and in defence and sorted them out by investing wisely in Alisson and Van Dijk.

The reconstruction of White Hart Lane is clearly affecting the club's ability to punch its weight in the transfer market, but the frayed edges are now showing.
Once again, Kane was a peripheral figure and, with Dele Alli missing through injury, Tottenham were toothless. If they can keep it going, whoever finishes in front of them this season will win the league.
Liverpool now have the depth that they lacked a year ago, though, and they also have extra quality.
On more than one occasion, Mane had an opportunity to pass to Salah but didn't.
With Hugo Lloris expected to miss several weeks with a thigh injury, Vorm is set for a run in the side but he looked culpable when Liverpool took their 39th-minute lead at Wembley, flapping at a corner and allowing Georginio Wijnaldum to head home.
The latter two will start the game at Wembley while Fabinho will start the game from the bench. That comes from the manager because he is on them all the time to work hard.
