Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Super Cup – Match Preview

Liverpool and Chelsea meet in Istanbul on Wednesday as they go head to head for the 2019 Super Cup.

The Reds started the 2019-20 season with a comfortable 4-1 win at home to Norwich City.

Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi, the scorers in Madrid to earn them their sixth Champions League, also found the net on Friday evening.

Chelsea were thrashed 4-0 by Manchester United, despite being the better side for long periods at Old Trafford.

Both Tammy Abraham and full-back Emerson hit the post; however defensive errors cost them dearly.

Match history
Liverpool took four points off Chelsea in the league last season, winning 2-0 at Anfield, with Salah scoring a goal of the season contender.

Chelsea have an indifferent recent record against Liverpool, winning just two of the last 10 meetings in all competitions.

Team news
Alisson suffered a calf injury in the win over Norwich and is set to miss a few weeks, meaning new signing Adrian will deputise here.

Sadio Mane is expected to get his first start of the season, whilst Joel Matip could come in.

N’Golo Kante was set to start here but suffered a set back and will likely be a substitute.

Frank Lampard could make a few other changes from the 4-0 loss, with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso in contention.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian; Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Chelsea (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Alonso; Kovacic, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Giroud, Pulisic
