Ozan Kabak is set for his debut while James Milner comes in for Thiago Alcantara as Liverpool prepare to welcome Leicester City to Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the side that was beaten 4-1 by Manchester City in the Premier League last week as Liverpool get set to play hosts to Leicester City at Anfield. There are no shuffles in goal, where Alisson Becker retains his spot as the first-choice goalkeeper despite his blunders last time out.
The first change comes in defence, where Fabinho misses out due to a muscle injury. In his stead, Ozan Kabak starts at the heart of the Liverpool defence, and is set to make his debut. Kabak will have Jordan Henderson as his central defensive partner, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson continuing as the two full-backs.

The other shuffle is also a forced one, with Thiago Alcantara not fit enough to start after missing training earlier this week. In his stead, James Milner comes into the three-man central midfield unit, with Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones providing him company. Thiago, though, is on the bench and could come off later in the game.
Finally, in attack, there is no looking past the first-choice trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, each of whom are fit and healthy. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri are backup attacking options on the bench.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Henderson, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Jones, Mane, Salah, Firmino
