Liverpool v Chelsea: Match preview

After enduring varying fortunes in their Premier League openers, Liverpool and Chelsea contest the first all-English meeting in the history of the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul.

Champions League winners Liverpool kicked off their domestic season in style with a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich City on Friday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, who qualified for the annual match after beating Tottenham 2-1 in the Champions League final in Madrid, blew the Canaries away in a blistering first-half performance that saw the Reds race into a four-goal lead.

Teemu Pukki’s composed finish reduced the deficit after goalkeeper Alisson had been forced off due to injury in an improved second half for the visitors.

But it was the perfect start for the Reds, who showed no signs of a hangover after coming up agonisingly short of eventual champions Manchester City last season despite a stunning title charge.

On the other hand, Frank Lampard’s youthful Chelsea side succumbed to a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday in the club legend’s first competitive game in charge of the Blues.

The scoreline flattered United, who rode their luck in the first half against a youthful Chelsea side featuring academy stars Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.

It was a damning result, but Lampard, hamstrung by a transfer ban and the loss of former talisman Eden Hazard, has a chance to bounce back immediately and win his first piece of silverware as a manager in Istanbul.

Despite a troubled relationship with the Chelsea faithful, Lampard’s predecessor Maurizio Sarri guided the west Londoners to the Europa League title last season, beating Arsenal 4-1 in the final in Baku to set up a first European clash with Liverpool since April 2009.

On that occasion, in one of the most memorable European encounters of all time, the two sides played out a 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge in a quarter-final second leg.

Chelsea eventually qualified for the semi-finals after winning 7-5 on aggregate in a topsy-turvy tie that continued a bitter rivalry between the two clubs, who were regularly going toe-to-toe both at home and abroad.

Liverpool have won only one of their last six encounters with Chelsea, but history shows that the Champions League winners have a superior record in the Super Cup.

Five of the last six trophies have been lifted by the reigning Champions League winners (Real Madrid in 2014, 2016 and 2017, Bayern Munich in 2013 and Barcelona in 2015), with the only exception being Atletico Madrid, who beat Real Madrid 4-2 in Tallinn, Estonia, last year.

What’s more, the last time an English team won the Super Cup was 2005, when Liverpool beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 in extra-time.

In another positive omen for the Reds, the Super Cup takes place in Istanbul, the scene of their dramatic Champions League final win over AC Milan 14 years ago at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

But this time the game takes place at the 41,000-seater Vodafone Park, 15 miles east of the Ataturk on the coast of the Bosporus and in the heart of Istanbul.

Home to Besiktas, the Vodafone Arena was only opened in 2016. The arena was constructed on the grounds of the legendary BJK Inonu Stadium, the former home of the Turkish giants.

It is a fitting venue for the latest chapter in a very modern rivalry that took hold after some classic European encounters, and BT Sport is the only place to watch the all of the action unfold.

Liverpool v Chelsea: The managers

Liverpool manager Klopp: “The Super Cup itself is not a cup that I've really loved to watch in the past because I was often the beaten finalist in the Champions League or Europa League.

“The Super Cup is obviously the final proof; if you are not in that game, it means you didn't win the final. That's completely different this year, so we're looking forward to it. It's a big one.

“It's a final, but the big difference between the Champions League final and this game is that it's a new season, a different opponent.

“I think Chelsea have changed a lot: a new manager, Eden Hazard is not there anymore.”

Chelsea manager Lampard: "It means a lot to the club, I know that because I lost two finals.

"I understand the feeling of when you work hard to get into this game, that you give your all to try to win it.

"It's another trophy for the club and will give us a feeling that if we can beat Liverpool and win a cup, we can go on from there.

"In terms of the defeat [at Old Trafford] I think you always learn as a manager. The clear lesson for everyone was if you make defensive errors against good teams it will cost you.

"The second message to the players was they did so many good things in the game, in terms of how we played in the game. If you take out the mistakes for the goals there were lots of good things."

Liverpool v Chelsea: Team news

Liverpool will be without goalkeeper Alisson, who picked up a calf injury in Friday night's win against Norwich, with new boy Adrian set to start.

Last season's Champions League golden glove winner will miss "the next few weeks" according to Klopp and the former West Ham stopper is set to deputise in his absence.

Centre-back Dejan Lovren has not travelled with the squad either, his manager saying illness has ruled the Croatian out as rumours of a move away from Anfield continue to swirl.

Chelsea can call on Willian and Antonio Rudiger, both of whom missed the defeat at Old Trafford through knee injuries, with Lampard confirming the duo are fit enough to make the bench.

N'Golo Kante is a doubt, however, with the France World Cup winner picking up a knock in Sunday's loss having started the game on the bench.

Liverpool v Chelsea: Head-to-head

Liverpool have won just one of their last six matches against Chelsea in all competitions (D3 L2), winning the last such contest between the two sides in the Premier League back in April (2-0), courtesy of goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
