Jurgen Klopp fielded a youthful side for their FA Cup third round tie against Everton on Sunday evening.
Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk were among those that were given a rest.
In their place, the likes of Harvey Elliott, Nathaniel Phillips, Curtis Jones and Neco Williams were all given a chance to start.
Carlo Ancelotti, on the other hand, fielded a full strength side as Everton looked to get their first win at Anfield since 1999.
But the Toffees struggled to break down their youthful opponents. With 20 minutes remaining, it looked all for the world that the game would end in a bore draw.

But then Jones stepped up in the 71st minute with an absolute beauty.
Picking the ball up from 25 yards, the young Englishman curled home an unstoppable effort that looped over Jordan Pickford and went in off the underside of the bar.
Watch it below:
Oh my. That is special from Jones.
What a way to get your first goal for your boyhood club and your first in professional football.
That is a moment the 18-year-old will never forget, that’s for sure.
Jones’ effort proved to be the only goal of the game as Liverpool held on to a narrow victory.
Jones was deservedly named Man-of-the-Match and he spoke to BBC Sport on the pitch after the game.
“I just go and try and play my game,” he said, per the Evening Standard. “Frustrating at times to be on the bench and I’m begging to come on. Hopefully I’ve topped that off with a great performance and a goal.
“I’m learning every day from world-class players out on the pitch and you can see the effect.”
It’s not the only memorable moment Jones has had in a red shirt this season.
The youngster played against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup fourth round earlier this season, which was 5-5 after extra-time.
And Jones would step up to score the winning penalty. That was a memorable moment in it’s own right, but his goal against Liverpool’s fierce rivals definitely tops that.
Jones’ wonder-goal means Liverpool’s chances of winning the quintuple are still on.
