Live: Liverpool v Chelsea



Last season’s Europa Cup final required Chelsea and Arsenal to travel all the way to Baku in Azerbaijan. Tonight’s Super Cup final — pitting the Europa Cup winners against the Champions League winners — takes Liverpool and Chelsea all the way to Istanbul. What’s more, the match is sandwiched right between the opening two weekends of the Premier League.

It remains to be seen what sort of line-ups will be on display in a match that won’t exactly mean everything to either club. Then again it’s Jürgen Klopp v Frank Lampard for the first time, which is bound to be intriguing. Who knows how many such encounters may lie in the future?


The Champions League and Europa League holders face-off as Liverpool meet Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup final. The Reds were the last English side to lift the trophy back in 2005.
