Luis Diaz makes his Premier League debut as Liverpool entertain Leicester at Anfield.
The Â£50m Colombian was introduced from the substitutes' bench in the 3-1 win over Cardiff in the FA Cup last week, but starts in the front three alongside Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
Diaz will likely start on the left with Jota on the right, while Mohamed Salah is reserved only for the bench following his exertions for Africa Cup of Nations finalists Egypt in Cameroon.
Thiago Alcantara makes his first start of 2022 in a midfield three alongside Fabinho and Curtis Jones.
In defence Joel Matip replaces Ibrahima Konate as Liverpool look to cut Manchester City's lead at the top of the Premier League to nine points.
Harvey Elliott is named on a strong-looking bench at Anfield alongside Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino.
