England will be out to bounce back from their defeat to Spain when they play Switzerland in a friendly at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

The Swiss squad contains a few familiar faces and, here, Press Association Sport takes a look at those in it who play in England.

Integral to the national team, the 25-year-old Arsenal midfielder is often seen as the link between defence and attack. He has featured in all four games under Unai Emery this season.

New to the Premier League this season, the experienced right-back joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Juventus. The 34-year-old has yet to start a game, with Hector Bellerin preferred, but he played at left-back after coming on as a substitute against Manchester City.

The only representative from the Championship comes in the form of Norwich centre-back Klose. The towering defender came off at half-time in the derby draw with Ipswich after a collision with Cole Skuse but he was fit to link up with the national team.

A key player for Stoke despite their relegation, Shaqiri got an instant return to the Premier League with a move to Liverpool. An undoubted star for his country, he has had less of an impact on Merseyside so far.

Like Lichtsteiner, Schar is new to the Premier League, having joined Newcastle from Deportivo La Coruna this summer. The centre-back has played twice for Rafael Benitez's men so far following a positive World Cup campaign.
