4-3-3: Klopp To Make 1 Key Change | Expected Liverpool Line-Up vs Leicester

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their perfect start to the new season when they take on Leicester City at the King Power on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the team we think Jurgen Klopp will select:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker has enjoyed a dream start to life in England following his summer move from AS Roma as the Brazilian international has kept three consecutive clean sheets so he’s certain to keep his place on Saturday. Loris Karius has joined Besiktas so Simon Mignolet will be Alisson’s understudy this season.
Defence: Klopp is highly unlikely to rotate a defence that’s yet to concede a goal in three games this season so I expect we’ll see an unchanged back four at the King Power.
That means Joel Matip may have to make-do with a place on the bench once again despite returning to full fitness as Joe Gomez should keep his place alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of defence after impressing so far.
Andrew Robertson will no doubt retain his place at left-back after an excellent start to the new campaign while Trent Alexander-Arnold should also keep out Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.
Midfield: Fabinho hasn’t made the matchday squad for the last two matches as Klopp has decided to ease him in to action following his move from Monaco but the Brazilian international will be hoping for a place on the bench at Leicester.
Georginio Wijnaldum has been excellent in the holding role so he could keep his place while summer signing Naby Keita is almost certain to start again in midfield after an excellent start to life in the Premier League.
However, Klopp has hinted he may look to start rotating his squad after naming an unchanged line-up for the first three games so we could see Jordan Henderson coming in for James Milner in the middle of the park.
Attack: If Klopp wants to freshen things up in attack then he could hand Xhedran Shaqiri his full debut while Daniel Sturridge is also pushing for a recall to the starting eleven.
However, it will be extremely difficult for Klopp to leave any of his star forwards out so I expect we’ll see Mohamed Salah keep his place after scoring the winner against Brighton last weekend.
Sadio Mane should also retain his place on the wing after netting three times already this season while Roberto Firmino is expected to lead the line up front once again so the likes of Sturridge, Shaqiri and Adam Lallana will have to make-do with places on the bench.
Here is how I think Liverpool will line up:
