Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will make his first start for the club in the Carabao Cup tie at Leicester.

The England international, who moved to Anfield on transfer deadline day, will be joined in the team by third-choice goalkeeper Danny Ward and fellow midfielder Marko Grujic.

Striker Dominic Solanke is also set to be involved while manager Jurgen Klopp is set to make a number of changes as forward Sadio Mane sits out the second game of his three-match ban.

Leicester are awaiting international clearance to complete the transfer of Adrien Silva from Sporting Lisbon.

The Premier League club are confident they managed to sign the Portugal midfielder in time, after being granted a two-hour extension to get the deal done after Thursday night's 11pm deadline passed.

Silva's move hinged on Danny Drinkwater sealing a switch to Chelsea and the window closed with Silva at Leicester's training ground and Drinkwater at Chelsea's Cobham base.

The paperwork for both deals was submitted on time and Drinkwater was announced as a Chelsea player at 1.30am on Friday morning but because Silva is an international transfer, Leicester have been waiting on clearance to announce the deal.

However, Sporting have said in a statement: "Sporting Club de Portugal... informs the market that we have reached an agreement with Leicester City Football Club for the definitive transfer of the sporting and economic rights of the professional soccer player Adrien Silva.

"The registration of the same (player) is awaiting confirmation of FIFA."

Leicester have signed Austria defender Aleksandar Dragovic from Bayer Leverkusen on a season-long loan.

The 26-year-old, currently on international duty, has won 54 international caps with 10 trophies from spells in the Austrian, Swiss and Ukrainian leagues with Austria Vienna, Basle and Dynamo Kiev respectively.

Leicester seem set to lose midfielder Danny Drinkwater to Chelsea late on deadline day but moves for Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray appear to have failed to materialise.
