      UEFA Super Cup: Liverpool v Chelsea. 14 August KO 20:00 BST
      Aug 11, 2019 12:12:52 pm

      Wednesday 14 August

      Liverpool      20:00     Chelsea


      Venue
      This is the first UEFA Super Cup held in Turkey, and the third time a UEFA club competition final is held in the country, after the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium and the 2009 UEFA Cup Final at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, both also in Istanbul.

      The stadium is the home ground of Turkish club Beşiktaş.

      Capacity: 41,903


      Officials
      On 2 August 2019, UEFA named French official Stéphanie Frappart as the referee for the match, becoming the first woman to referee the final of a UEFA men's competition. Frappart has been a FIFA referee since 2009,[ and had officiated at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in the month prior, where she was appointed as the referee for the final. She also previously officiated at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, 2016 Summer Olympics and UEFA Women's Euro 2017, and became the first woman to referee in Ligue 1 in April 2019.

      I remember her from the Women's World Cup, takes no crap, but I wasn't too impressed.

      So to the game, for me we should go for this 100%, Sadly Allison is out, but I'd put Milner and Mane in. Big game for Chelsea today, so we've had a bigger rest, up to the powers how serious we take this, but with the Community Shield gone, we need this IMHO.

      Guess we'll see how Lampard will set up his team later today, but irrespective of their team, we need to get the winning bug, and it starts on Wednesday.

      Come on you sexy Reds.

      Feeling confident about this one - Lampard will be good for them in time I think, but losing Hazard will be huge and it will be a bit too early in the season for them to cope with our front three

      I would categorize losing Wednesday as a colossal disaster. We are better than them in so many ways that it would take a total bottling job to lose this one.

      Hopefully Gini is nowhere near the starting line up! Get Keita in there, though I expect it will be Milner.

      My sentiments too Kenny.
      Don’t think he’s shown enough form to be included when we clearly have options.
      That’s what the options are for.
      Injuries or poor form.

      Adrian; Gomez, Matip, VVD, Robertson; Hendo, Milner, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

      Big, big game.

      Big game this one, really up for it and hoping to see some more silverware brought back to Anfield.

      This year really is a big chance to build upon last seasons efforts and to start winning trophies after far too long being the bridesmaid.

      I'm hoping the club see it the same way and we go with the strongest team possible.

      I would definitely keep Trent at full back. He is a far bigger threat than Gomez at right back.

      I'd put Keita in for Gini and Mane in for Origi, we are a better team and should win this plus we have more rest days than them, which is actually a bit unfair on them.

      Well not sure if Chavs were holding back for Wednesday, or scum really were that much better than them.
      I’m thinking Chavs are there for the taking, and we could get 5 or 6 going by today’s defensive performance.
      Of course we still have to put ALL our chances away, unlike Friday.
      And EVERYONE play together up top and not as individuals !

      If chavs play on Wednesday like they did today we'll murder them, even if the improve 100% we'll win. In summary I'll be bloody annoyed if we don't win the supercup.

      Holding back for Wednesday?

      GERNS - I dare say you're overestimating the importance of the Super Cup if you think Chelsea's loss was half down to them keeping one eye on Wednesday night!

      They will be better than that on Wednesday. I do wonder if Jürgen will use a different lineup in Istanbul, or maybe at the weekend vs. Southampton. I hope we see Keita and Matip. Wouldn't mind a debut for Brewster as well, but not sure how imminent that is.

      Why will they be better on Wednesday, are we an easier opponent than Manure? I think we'll rip them a new one.

      Kante and Alonso to come back in I'd suspect. Could have been a different game today if Chelsea had got the first goal they deserved.

      That being said we go in as favourites no doubt.

      I just don't expect them to play as badly. They had a fairly good team last year, not awful like they were today. Saying they will be better is not reflective on us.

      I would go with the same lineup as Friday, with the exception of Kieta in for Gini. I would try and get Mane on at the 60 minute mark and bring him in slowly, and then ramp him up to start on the weekend

      I would give Mane more time to be fully fit because it will be a long season. I woud drop Wijnaldum.

      Confident about this one. We'll win this quite easily. Had there been Sarri, then I would've seen it as a tough fixture, but with new manager and no Hazard, they'll be fu**ed.
