Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways when they take on league leaders Leicester City on Boxing Day. Here is the side I think the Jurgen Klopp will pick.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet is fit and available after missing the defeat at Watford due to a minor hamstring injury. Adam Bogdan will drop to the bench after a disappointing display at Vicarage Road.

Defence: Klopp will also have to make at least one change to his defence as Martin Skrtel has been ruled out for around six weeks after suffering a hamstring injury last time out. Luckily, Dejan Lovren is now fit after a knee injury so should come straight back in to start alongside Mamadou Sakho at the back. Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne should keep their places in the full back slots.

Midfield: James Milner has been ruled out with a calf injury that he picked up in training so Lucas Leiva should continue alongside Jordan Henderson and Emre Can in the middle of the park – although Joe Allen is available if Klopp wants to mix things up.

Attack: Daniel Sturridge remains out with a hamstring injury so Christian Benteke could get a recall after Roberto Firmino started in a ‘false 9’ role against Watford. Philippe Coutinho is set to continue in attack along with Adam Lallana.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    I think that’s s poor line up . We don’t use width and cross balls into box so benteke on his own will just be a waste of time as usual .sakho was poor against Watford probably because he’s not fully fit or sharp yet but we are very limited in this position to be fair . I would play 1 deep lying mid not 2 which would enable us to play 2 upfront .
