3 Changes Klopp Needs To Implement To Ensure Liverpool Wins The UEFA Super Cup Vs Chelsea

Liverpool are set to take on Chelsea at the Vodafone Park on Wednesday night with the hope of bringing the UEFA Super Cup back to Merseyside. The Reds come into this encounter on the back of a 4-1 victory over Norwich City in the opening night of the new Premier League season. 

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be facing a wounded Chelsea side that suffered a dismal 4-0 loss at the hands of Manchester United last weekend. Therefore, it won’t be easy for the European champions to claim a positive result away in Istanbul in midweek.

Klopp might opt for a 4-3-3 formation, but a lot will ride on his team selection for tomorrow’s European clash against the Pensioners.

Here are three changes that Klopp can look to implement to ensure the Reds can secure a positive outcome and win the UEFA Super Cup once again after 14 years.

Continue Playing Divock Origi Up Top

Origi has enjoyed a rich vein of form for the Reds in recent matches. Hence, he should be given another opportunity to impress and make a difference for Liverpool up top. The Belgian striker would fancy his chances of getting his name on the scoresheet versus Chelsea on Wednesday night after finding the back of the net versus Norwich City last week.

Bring James Milner And Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain In To Command The Midfield

Klopp needs to freshen up his midfield by opting for the energetic duo of Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The pair would give Liverpool an edge when they attempt to press high up the pitch to force the opposition into making mistakes.

Milner’s vast experience and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s driving runs in the opposition half will add another dimension to the Reds midfield.

Play Matip Alongside Van Dijk At The Back

Joel Matip has done remarkably well for Liverpool after managing to establish himself as a regular starter under Klopp’s tutelage last season. He was an integral part of the Liverpool backline and inspired his side to win the UEFA Champions League last season. Therefore, Klopp would be wise to use him in place of Joe Gomez as the Cameroon international could help his side keep things tidy at the back.
