Jurgen Klopp welcomes back a host of first-team players, making eight changes to the side that started the FA Cup tie with West Ham at the weekend.

Only Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren retain their places.

Roberto Firmino starts up front in place of Christian Benteke – who scored the only goal of the game when these two sides met just over a month ago at Anfield.

Captain Jordan Henderson returns in midfield, alongside Emre Can and Lucas Leiva.

James Milner and Adam Lallana support Firmino in attack, while Lovren partners Mamadou Sakho in defence.

Kick off tonight is 7.45pm GMT, we’ll have live updates from the King Power Stadium on twitter and in our live matchday blog from 7.15pm.
