Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

The Blues, on the other hand, continue life without Belgian superstar Eden Hazard and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Liverpools party in Istanbul. In their last meeting in a competitive game Jurgen Klopps men emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby on Matchday 6. The Blues impressed in a 5-2 win at Wolverhampton, with England rising star Abraham scoring a hat-trick for the capital club. Frank Lampards troops aim to rejoin the race for the title and we predict that they will go for a win in Sundays showdown in London.

League Table

It has to be noted that he was named Romas player of the season (2015/2016). After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone.

It is fair to say that the Blues were missing some key members of their squad in the defeat to the Red Devils at the weekend but they could be boosted by a few returnees. Although, the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger all remain on the sidelines. Willian was struggling with a hamstring injury but should be cleared to return for the trip to Turkey. NGolo Kante has also picked up a small injury so is a slight doubt.

Frank Lampard suffered a devastating 4-0 blow at the hands of Manchester United. The fact they made 18 goal attempts and failed to score this weekend, speaks volumes of their ineptitude at the moment. On the other side, Chelsea endured a terrible start to their new Premier League campaign. Ultimately, Chelsea are struggling with goal conversion. Former Chelsea player is going through all sorts of problems including the transfer ban and the fact he lost two important players this summer.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Odds

Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash. The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners.

Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million.

Therefore, sadio Mane is likely to make his return following his extended break. However, Liverpool brought Adrian this summer and he will take the place on the goal line. The Reds will be without their first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker who suffered a calf injury in the opening round of the Premier League. All other regulars are fit to play on Wednesday.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Stats

Considering the contrasting weekend performances from these teams, a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopps men looks to be on the cards. We like the look of a Liverpool -1 Handicap Win, and were opting for an emphatic 3-0 scoreline in Istanbul too. In addition, 10 of Liverpools 12 competitive matches have seen them win by at least a 2 goal margin, including a 2-0 win over Chelsea back in April.

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

However, they are in good form in European competitions and are on a 15-match unbeaten run which culminated with a 4-1 thumping of Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League final last season. They appeared in both 2012 and 2013 but were beaten by Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively. Having appeared in three editions of the UEFA Super Cup, the Londoners have only managed to lift the trophy on one occasion and that was back in 1998. The omens are also slightly worrying heading into the clash against Liverpool.

Chelsea - Liverpool

The defeat was Chelseas heaviest since a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City back in February. In comparison to the Merseysiders, Chelseas season could not have got off to a worse possible start. The team then will be doing their upmost to avoid back-to-back defeats for the first time since March 2018. Under new boss Frank Lampard, the Blues were humbled 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford despite not putting in a disastrous performance.

Chelsea vs Liverpool is live on Super Sunday from 1pm; kick-off 4.30pm after West Ham vs Manchester United. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.

They also won the UEFA Super Cup in 2001 and 1977, with another win this time around seeing them draw level with Spanish giants Real Madrid. Heading into the game, reigning European champions Liverpool have the chance to become the joint third most successful club in Super Cup history. The Reds have appeared in five editions of the match, last running out victors in 2005 as they overcame Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco. Of course, they will be extremely confident going into the match having memorably lifted the UEFA Champions League against fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur back in June.
