Fierce Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea, this Wednesday night at Istanbul’s BJK Vodafone Park will be battling for the right to lift the European Super Cup.

The Reds approach the fixture as Champions League winners and having come off an impressive start to their Premier League season with an easy 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday.

Europa League champions Chelsea, meanwhile, had a rather disappointing outing against Manchester United at Old Trafford, with Frank Lampard’s top-flight managerial debut ending in a 4-0 rout.

While Jurgen Klopp’s men are seen as favourites for the Super Cup, Chelsea have a point to prove with their rookie manager, Frank Lampard, and also to show the world they can move on despite the exit of their star player Eden Hazard who has since joined Real Madrid.
