Brendan Rodgers picked a back four line-up with new signings Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard both starting the match. Vestergaard partnered with Caglar Soyunku in the defence flanked by Bertrand and Timothy Castagne on either side. The four-man midfield comprised of Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans in the centre and Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton as left and right midfielder, respectively. Jamie Vardy led the attack with James Maddison in support. Kasper Schmeichel was the man between the sticks.
