GAME PREVIEW


Jordan Henderson Liverpool

Both managers are expected to make several changes for this Carabao Cup tie.

Leicester could hand debuts to summer signings Aleksandar Dragovic and Vicente Iborra in order to give Wes Morgan and Wilfred Ndidi a rest.

Ben Hamer, Ahmed Musa, Daniel Amartey, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani are among the other contenders to draw into the starting lineup, while youngsters Josh Knight and Hamza Choudhory could also be involved in some capacity.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Danny Ward, Marko Grujic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all start.

If Klopp wishes to rest Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, though, the ex-Arsenal man may be needed as a winger rather than in the midfield role he hopes to carve out at Anfield.

Ben Woodburn, Dominic Solanke and Joe Gomez are among the other contenders for minutes and Jon Flanagan and Danny Ings will also hope to be involved as they build up their match fitness.
