Probable Starting Teams for 2019 Super Cup – Liverpool FC v Chelsea FC

We have the probable starting teams for tonight’s Super Cup between Chelsea FC and Liverpool.

A naive Chelsea side was hammered by Manchester United at the weekend, the had some shocking defensive errors and lost 4-0 at Old Trafford.

“I’m optimistic because I believe in the players, In terms of the defeat {at Old Trafford] I think you always learn as a manager. ” Lampard said.

“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.”

Klopp has said he was wary of a “fresh” Chelsea under new boss Lampard “If people think Chelsea aren’t a challenge then I can’t help these people,” he said.

“They are really strong and young and fresh and everything is exciting because Frank, a club legend, is new at the club and will want to make a name for himself as Chelsea manager. It will be really interesting and it’s a really important game.

“I know about the special importance and what a special place Istanbul is for every Liverpool supporter. Nobody will forget 2005, but we are different people, a team from 2019-20 and a pretty good one as well. Istanbul is always good place to play football.
