      Chelsea 2-2 Liverpool (4-5 pens AET): In game and Post Match discussion
      Aug 14, 2019 06:45:45 pm
      Liverpool go in search of more European silverware this evening as they contest the 2019 UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea at Besiktas Park.

      We're in Turkey with the Reds to bring you all of the build-up, action and reaction from the annual showpiece match, which Jürgen Klopp's side are aiming to win for a fourth time in club history.

      Beşiktaş Park:









      Klopp's pre match presser:

      Stat attack...

      Here are some key facts and figures ahead of kick-off in Istanbul...

      Victory would see Liverpool move level with Real Madrid on the Super Cup roll of honour with four wins, one behind AC Milan and Barcelona

      This is the 44th edition of the European Super Cup but the first to be held in Turkey and first to feature two English teams

      An appearance for Joel Matip at Besiktas Park would be his 100th for Liverpool

      The Reds were the last English club to win the Super Cup, beating CSKA Moscow 3-1 after extra-time in Monaco in 2005

      Team news:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5xIlAp000E

Adrian is handed a full debut in goal, replacing the injured Alisson Becker.

      Liverpool: Adrian, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Milner, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah.

      Subs: Lonergan, Kelleher, Wijnaldum, Firmino, Lallana, Shaqiri, Brewster, Origi, Hoever, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.

      Is it more of a 4-4-2 or still 4-3-3 with Ox going up front?

      Either way, strong lineup and expect to be lifting another trophy before the afternoon is over!

      Was thinking 4-2-3-1 myself, but of course all the numbers in our "formation" are fluid. My questions are how far forward and/or wide will Ox be deployed, and accordingly, how will Sadio and Mo be set up in attack?

      Now let's win this!

      5 Live just  mentioned we've never won a match over 90 minutes in Istanbul. Might as well end that streak then.

      Looking forward to seeing what kind of damage a front line of Ox-Mane-Salah can do assuming that is how Klopp is going to place it. A few more changes then I expect but if the guys playing can play their best we should see a few goals in this one.

      I was thinking Salah in the middle and Chamberlain on the right.

      I was thinking Sarah in the middle and Chamberlain on the right.

      I think that would make sense. Would prefer not to see Ox out on the left.

      Slightly weird lineup but Chelsea stronger than against Manure so clearly they take this seriously.
      Still fancy us to win this.

      Still a basic 433.

      Keepimg it tight first half then opening up the game later on with firmino.

      Enjoy Reds.
      See  you on t'other side.
