The Liverpool chief will, however, chop and change again for the trip to the Foxes and has confirmed that Danny Ward, Marko Grujic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all start.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool from Arsenal for £35m on transfer deadline day and made his first appearance for the Reds on 9 September, coming off the bench in a 5-0 defeat by Manchester City.

"He's been back training this week and if we get him we'll be delighted, but if not he might possibly be involved with the first team against Leicester, which would give him a big lift as well".

"It's a fantastic opportunity for Alex to go in".

Wales goalkeeper Ward, 24, is in line to make his first start of the season after he returned to Anfield this summer from his successful loan spell at Huddersfield Town. As long as we can line up strong, we will line up strong.

"I am not sure if the world is ready for such a insane decision - the third goalkeeper in one season without an injury", added Klopp, who has had to field regular questions about his preferred number one having switched between Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius and back again already.

"We took a lot of risk in this game and he was involved in it and did really well". Now you have three of the line up!

"We sit together with him and the analysts to show him how we want him to play in this position or that position.it's worked too but there's no rush".

Striker Dominic Solanke and full-back Jon Flanagan are also expected to play some part as manager Jurgen Klopp makes a number of changes from the sides that drew with Sevilla and Burnley.

'It's really good that he's here'.

"We will see, it depends on a few other things".

"We will see how we can do this, but [Flanagan] is in the mix for tomorrow for sure". That makes sense for the players.
