Breaking News ! 'Assume that Thiago doesn't make it' Ian Doyle: At one point it seemed like I was going to get the call from Jurgen Klopp given the way his Liverpool players were dropping out of contention. Thankfully for everybody, matters haven't quite come to that. But there are some head-scratchers for the Reds boss as Premier League leaders Leicester City visit this evening. Let's make some assumptions. Namely, Fabinho is available and Thiago Alcantara is not. That means the former can line up at centre-back alongside Joel Matip, with Alisson Becker in goal and Andy Robertson left-back. Right-back is between Neco Williams and James Milner. For a long time, the youngster's faster legs were proving decisive, but ultimately experience has told. Milner is in. Gini Wijnaldum, then, will have to anchor the midfield.

Up top, with no Mohamed Salah, it's Sadio Mane on the left, Diogo Jota on the right and Roberto Firmino down the middle. My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Milner, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Jones, Keita; Jota, Firmino, Mane '4-3-3 is a must' Sean Bradbury: Over the next few weeks, I think we will see plenty more of the 4-2-3-1/4-4-2 that lit up the opening half-hour at the Etihad. But it might be too risky today. With Jordan Henderson out and Thiago apparently not quite ready, Gini Wijnaldum plus one more could potentially leave the Reds a little exposed against Leicester. So it is back to 4-3-3 for me. But with different personnel than usual. At the back, I would bring in Neco Williams to help counter Jamie Vardy's pace.

. Joel Matip and the returning Fabinho are the centre-backs. Must-read Liverpool FC news Klopp explains long Thiago absence Liverpool January transfer admission Salah plan could shock Leicester The 63 unbeaten home PL games in photos Thiago seems perfect for this one. His penetration and passing through the middle would be the ideal remedy given attacking down the flanks will take a hit with the absence of Trent Alexander-Arnold. Will the new recruit be fit enough though? If not, Naby Keita comes in. James Milner and Wijnaldum complete the trio in either case. Up front it is Diogo Jota on the left, Roberto Firmino central and Sadio Mane back in his old spot on the right. My team (4-3-3): Alisson; N Williams, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Milner, Thiago/Keita; Mane, Firmino, Jota 'Shaqiri gets the nod' Matt Addison: With injuries at the back, my back four picks itself. Fabinho is in at centre-back for added experience, which could be crucial against Jamie Vardy. Given that Fabinho is back, Milner can play at right-back.

Liverpool played Leicester with Jordan Henderson in that role a couple of years ago and he managed fine, so Milner will too, and he is just ahead of Neco Williams for me. I'll go for a midfield two, asking a lot of Wijnaldum to do the work defensively, as he did for the most part against Man City. Naby Keita, who was great at the start of the season, can help him out, as I doubt that Thiago will be ready - but you never know. Xherdan Shaqiri gets the nod in the Mohamed Salah role for me, with Jota through the middle and Firmino behind him. Sadio Mane, of course, is stationed out on the left side. My team (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Milner, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Keita; Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane; Jota
