Jurgen Klopp's side have been finalists and semi-finalists in the last two seasons, but Champions League commitments mean that the Reds boss will make a host of changes for the trip to the King Power Stadium, which is live on Sky Sports Football. Danny Ward will play tomorrow.

"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. It's a fantastic opportunity now for Alex.

"It is a fantastic opportunity for Alex because since he has been in it has been hard to train on different things because of game after game after game", he told reporters.

He added: 'We work with him and analysts, show him how we want to play in this position, that position. We took a lot of risks in this game and he was involved in it and did really well.

Klopp made seven changes to his side for Saturday's clash with Burnley, but it backfired as the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw.

It was a frustrating return for a Liverpool side that has plenty going forward but needs to kill off teams as they did so effectively against Arsenal prior to the global break, and there will be chances for some of the club's fringe players to impress ahead of the challenges to come.

"For instance Marko Grujic made a big step in his development but no-one can see it yet".

"He also had a wonderful impact when he came on in the last game [against Burnley]". It's really good that he's here.

Klopp also reported that Jon Flanagan could feature, although that depends on Dejan Lovren's fitness.

"We will see, it depends on a few other things". Of course, it's a little bit unusual that we play Leicester again on the weekend.
