Liverpool vs Chelsea
UEFA Super Cup
Date: Wednesday, 14 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park (Istanbul).
Liverpool played a good match against Norwich final Friday by winning 4-1 in the home. But there is some thing happend about what the Liverpool (and the other impartial fans) don’t like: Alisson got hurt during that game. There’s absolutely not any doubt about the standard of this Liverpool: they are actually the only team that will make the name race and exciting one from the Premier League.
As already stated: Alisson is injured with this match. We can expect Adrian from the goal, who did a great job after substituting the first goalkeeper from Brazil. There are no other critical accidents at the side of Liverpool.
Chelsea got ruined last Sunday from Manchester United. They lost with 4-0. They simply weren’t able to handle the rate of the United forwards and they didn’t have any idea how to take control of the midfield. For Chelsea Hudson-Odoi, James, Rudiger and van Ginkel are out.
Liverpool actually has a kind of the identical style as Manchester United: really fast players in the assault using Salah and Mané. I expect Chelsea to have serious issues with the quick players at the assault of Liverpool. Liverpool is also very strong in defense against Virgil van Dijk as a real leader: I really have my doubts about the attacking line of Chelsea and what they can do.
Taking into consideration the current type of either, the Reds are easily the favorites.
They have kept the group that terrorized teams across Europe, and more importantly, the players seem hungry and so are in-form. Meanwhile, the Blues are yet to make a cohesive unit under Lampard.
Jordan Henderson and his boys can gladly benefit from this state of Chelsea.
They are in line to lift another continental decoration this Wednesday.
Going on though, the fact that it has an opportunity to put claim on silverware will really energize the 2016-17 Premier League champions. They also have the confidence of not needing to face Allison Becker in the back.
Moreover, eight of the last twenty five h2h clashes had targets from both groups, and more importantly, Chelsea found the back of the internet in 19 of the past 20 face battles.
