Liverpool vs Chelsea Match Preview
Chelsea face the daunting task of trying to bounce back quickly from their 4-0 drubbing at Manchester United by trying to lift the UEFA Super Cup only three days later against Liverpool.
The Blues travel to Istanbul as Europa League holders, taking on a Liverpool side who looked just as good as in last term’s Champions League-winning campaign when they began the new Premier League season with a 4-1 victory at home to Norwich.
Liverpool’s fans have a soft spot for Turkey’s biggest city as that is where the club came back from the dead to win the Champions League Final in 2005, albeit that was in the Ataturk Olympic Stadium rather than Besiktas’ ground like this match.
An interesting feature here is the appointment of female referee Stephanie Frappart, who recently officiated in the Women’s World Cup Final, as the first of her gender to conduct a showdown for a major men’s trophy.
This is a big test for Chelsea’s new manager Frank Lampard, who will have been pleased with some aspects of his team’s performance at Old Trafford on Sunday but less so their defending as they ended up well beaten even though the scoreline flattered United.
There is generally not much between these teams – more than one goal has separated them in only two of their last 13 meetings – and with Liverpool missing injured goalkeeper Alisson, they may not be as solid as usual so Chelsea may just be capable of taking them to extra time.
