UEFA Super Cup Preview: Chelsea vs Liverpool

UEFA Super Cup Preview: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Former Preston North End goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan has been included in Liverpool's 23-man squad for the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday night.

"I will have no fears to play young players, it's important at a club like Chelsea that we do that, but they need to deserve the chance".

The trio have worked together at bigger matches - they were in charge of this year's Women's World Cup final in France - but there is no doubt they will be under intense focus at Istanbul's Vodafone Park.

While Jurgen Klopp's Reds thrashed Norwich 4-1 on Friday night, Frank Lampard's tenure as Chelsea manager began with an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"It's going to be tough, but we cannot walk off the pitch and think, "Oh, we could've done that" or "we missed that opportunity" or "we weren't quite ready" or make any excuses for ourselves".

Revelling in the creative role, the No.14 chipped in with four more assists and a goal during the last 10 games of the season.

I roll my eyes when players moan about being exhausted as I wanted to play every day of the week during my career, but the way the games fell last weekend certainly helped Jurgen Klopp and his players.

"We were far, far off in that game".

The other notable piece of news is that Dejan Lovren won't travel for the Super Cup clash against Chelsea.

"He was in with us, he's a brilliant character, a really nice lad and helped us a lot in the pre-season, and now we (have) made a decision to work together with him".

With the extent of Alisson's injury still not confirmed, Liverpool might be looking at a familiar face to help them in the meantime as the Brazilian worldwide heals from his calf injury.

Stephanie Frappart will write her name in the history books on Wednesday as she becomes the first female referee to officiate a UEFA men's competition event.

Chelsea secured their place in the Turkey showpiece by winning the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri and successor Lampard, drawing on his playing days, said: 'It means a lot to the club. Refereeing is the same, football is the same, I would do the same I do in women's football'.

"[They are] a good football team and we use three games and try to make the right conclusion of that and do the right things in the game".
