Fabinho returns for Liverpool in tonight’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.

The Brazilian has recovered from the muscle issue that has ruled him out of the Reds’ last three outings and begins alongside Joel Matip in defence.

Elsewhere, James Milner starts at right-back, while Naby Keita comes into midfield.

Xherdan Shaqiri misses out due to a fitness issue which is to be assessed by the club’s medical team, so Academy youngster Leighton Clarkson is named on the bench.

Liverpool: Alisson, Milner, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Jones, Jota, Mane, Firmino.

Subs: Adrian, Minamino, Tsimikas, Origi, Phillips, Clarkson, N. Williams.
