Jurgen Klopp has finally handed summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain his first start for Liverpool against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.
Jurgen Klopp has rung in the changes after two draws, with the focus more on resting key players while also providing others with an opportunity to impress and stake their claim on a more extensive role in the first-team setup.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been handed his first start by Klopp, who has also chosen to go with Dominic Solanke upfront. Philippe Coutinho is retained by the German, who would be hoping the playmaker uses the tie as a warmup to get back into the groove.
Danny Ward starts in goal for Liverpool, a position that has seen continuous rotation under Klopp. Danny Ings is on the bench after his long battle with injuries and fitness issues.
