Former Liverpool captain Mark Wright thinks that Simon Mignolet is a more commanding presence in the box at present than Loris Karius, which is one of the reasons he is the club's number 1 ahead of the German.
Liverpool manager Klopp snapped Karius up from Mainz in the summer transfer window, but a hand injury meant Mignolet started the season as first choice.
Klopp soon dropped Mignolet in favour of Karius when the goalkeeper was fit again, but a series of disastrous displays from the German led to him losing his starting place.
Karius played for Liverpool in Sunday's 0-0 draw at home against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup, but Wright does not think Mignolet will lose his standing as number 1 and explained the big advantage he has over his rival.
"What you want is a strong voice and presence and at the moment Mignolet has a stronger voice and presence than Karius", Wright said on LFC TV.
"I think that's probably why he's in the side at the moment and Mignolet has not made any mistakes.
"You need that man behind you to dictate where the line is and what's going on."
It remains to be seen who Klopp picks between the sticks for Liverpool's next match, which is the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final tie against Southampton.
Liverpool could potentially meet fierce rivals Manchester United in the final as the Red Devils take on Hull City in the competition's other semi-final tie.
