Liverpool line-ups for Leicester City as changes made after Darwin Nunez decision


Paul Gorst: Changes, Pep Lijnders says, are “a given” tonight but I still think it will be a strong enough team to make the travelling Leicester City wince when the team news drops.

Such are the options at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal now that he will generally be able to field sides full of quality throughout at every stage of the cup competitions this term.

Caoimhin Kelleher - a “world-class” deputy, according to Lijnders - starts in goal behind a back four of Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah, Ibrahima Konate and Andy Robertson.

In midfield, Wataru Endo can anchor the engine room with Harvey Elliott and Ryan Gravenberch ahead of the Japan captain with the likes of Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister waiting in the wings.

Up top, Ben Doak starts off the right with Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo completing the front three. Mo Salah might find he has the night off while Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz can be kept in reserve.

My team (4-3-3): Kelleher; Gomez, Quansah, Konate, Robertson; Endo, Elliott, Gravenberch; Doak, Gakpo, Jota.

Meanwhile, Ben Doak gets another start in attack on the right, with Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota both coming back into the starting XI after being used as substitutes in the weekend victory over West Ham.

My team (4-3-3): Kelleher; Bajcetic, Konate, Quansah, Tsimikas; Elliott, Endo, Gravenberch; Doak, Gakpo, Jota.

Sean Bradbury: While it is tempting to keep up the momentum of some in-form players, Spurs is a massive game at the weekend.

Which means that the very capable 'second string' are backed to tackle Leicester City at Anfield this evening.
