The Reds boss has manoeuvred his team to the top of the table, and they are currently four points clear of champions Manchester City.
Klopp came in for some criticism this week when he fielded a second-string side away to Wolves and was knocked out of the FA Cup.
But Norwegian football expert Lars Sivertsen, thinks it was the right decision – and pointed to some telling stats collated by his compatriot Christoffer Johansen.
Speaking on the Football Weekly Extra podcast, Sivertsen said: “I would certainly say it might not be a bad idea for Liverpool to go out of [the FA Cup].
“In general I like the cup competitions but I do think there’s a caveat with Liverpool given that they are chasing what would be a historic and massively significant league title for them.
“If you look at the last seven Premier League winners, when they went out of the FA Cup and out of Europe, you’ll actually see that 11 out of 14 cup runs were done by mid-March.
“So it is a trend that the teams that go on to win the league are usually done with all this cup business pretty early in the season.
“Specifically with Liverpool, under Klopp they have almost a quarter of a point extra as an average points pick-up, if they have four or more rest days ahead of a game.
“If they have four or more rest days ahead of a game they pick up 2.11 points on average, whereas if they have three days or fewer, their average is 1.87.
“So we know for a fact that Liverpool struggle when they have more games.
“They are less likely to win if they have fewer days in which to rest.
“The trend was very similar for Klopp when he was at Dortmund.
“So I don’t think it was a bad idea for Liverpool to go out of this competition.”
The Reds were unbeaten in the Premier League until they lost to Manchester City last week, immediately before their cup exit.
But they remain top of the table, and will look to bounce back away to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
