Premier League football returns this weekend as Liverpool entertain Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday night for what will be the Merseysiders first home game of the new season. Here is the side we think Jurgen Klopp will select:

Goalkeeper: Loris Karius returned to full training this week after recovering from a broken hand but Klopp is still expected to stick with Simon Mignolet between the sticks this weekend.

Defence: Ragnar Klavan has been ruled out after aggravating a knee injury while away on international duty while Mamadou Sakho is still unavailable as he continues to try and work his way back in to Klopp’s plans.

It means Joel Matip is expected to continue alongside Dejan Lovren in the middle of defence after an impressive outing at Tottenham before the international break while Nathaniel Clyne should keep his place at right-back.

James Milner may once again be preferred to Alberto Moreno at left-back after replacing the Spaniard in the last two games.

Midfield: Emre Can has been ruled out after failing to recover from an ankle injury that he sustained last month so Jordan Henderson should continue in midfield along with Gini Wijnaldum. Adam Lallana is expected to play in a deeper midfield role alongside Henderson and Wijnaldum.

Attack: Sadio Mane is fit and available for selection following an injury scare while away on international duty with Senegal so he’ll keep his place alongside Philippe Coutinho in attack.

Roberto Firmino is expected to lead the line up front with Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi once again among the substitutes meaning I think we’ll see the same eleven that started at White Hart Lane two weeks ago.

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

    You just mentioned Klavan won’t be available and then you put him in your starting 11 ??? At least check for obvious mistakes before showing to all. In my opinion there is an obvious weakness in the deep lying roll . I feel klopp hasn’t got very good balance in his ultimate team . All 2/3 deep lying mids are naturally attacking and don’t give much shielding to a very average back line not to mention the fact we now have a midfielder playing at left back . Our team now looks to me a case of let’s hope we can score more than our opponents do because we won’t be getting many clean sheets this season that’s for sure

    If klopp should use this lineup then i think he’s crazy. He should stop using femino has our strike force. what is sturrage, Ing and origi doing on the bench? Klopp had better be careful with his nonsense selections. If we loose he’s to be held responsible.
