Liverpool - Chelsea
Possible starting lineups:
Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Origi, Mane
Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic; Giroud
Liverpool and Chelsea will play UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul. The Reds are big favorites in this match, even more after Chelsea lost 4:0 from Manchester United on Sunday. Nevertheless, the Blues weren t bad as the result suggests. Chelsea were unlucky to score as they struck the woodwork twice in the first half, while United scored from a "soft" penalty.
There are two more reasons for my pick. The first is connect with Alisson s injury. The Brazilian goalkeeper suffered a calf injury against Norwich and will be out for six weeks. He will be replaced by the former West Ham keeper Adrian. That s a huge handicap for Klopp as Alisson is simply irreplaceable.
The second reason is connect with the recent mutual results. Chelsea are more successful as they have just one defeat on the last six mutual games. I think they are able to remain unbeaten after the regular 90 minutes.
