London: Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has recovered from a hamstring injury and is set to return against Leicester on Boxing Day.

Centre-back Martin Skrtel is out for six weeks with a hamstring problem but will be replaced by fellow defender Dejan Lovren, who has recovered from a similar problem which kept him out of last weekend’s defeat at Watford. 

Midfielder James Milner (calf) faces another couple of weeks out.
