James Milner and Fabinho start in defence, while Naby Keita is among the others who return as Liverpool prepare to take on Leicester City at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to the side that started in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City before the international break as Liverpool get set to lock horns with Leicester City at Anfield. There are no shuffles whatsoever in goal, with Alisson Becker starting between the sticks.
Up ahead in midfield, Klopp has had to make two forced changes. Interestingly, the Liverpool boss has gone for experience over youth, with James Milner and Fabinho coming in for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, respectively. Joel Matip and Andrew Robertson, though, keep hold of their places in the backline.
Here’s the Reds to take on @LCFC tonight 👊🔴

Up ahead in midfield, a likely change in formation to a 4-3-3 sees Klopp make the remaining two changes. Georginio Wijnaldum is the only midfielder who continues his run in the side, with Jordan Henderson out injured. Naby Keita and Curtis Jones are Wijnaldum’s new partners in the middle of the park.
Finally, in attack, the big miss invariably is Mohamed Salah, who misses out after testing positive for COVID-19. In his absence, Liverpool’s three-man attacking unit comprises of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Milner, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Jones, Jota, Mane, Firmino
