Chelsea will go head to head with Liverpool at the Vodafone Park with the hope of lifting the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night. The Pensioners come into this contest at the back of a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Manchester United in the Premier League last weekend. Therefore, the West London outfit will find it challenging to earn a positive result versus the Reds in midweek.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were victorious in their first competitive outing of the season when they defeated Norwich City with a 4-0 scoreline at Anfield on Friday night. Hence, the Merseyside giants will be full of confidence heading into this European clash away in Istanbul.
Here are three changes that Lampard should consider making to ensure success in the UEFA Super Cup clash versus the Reds in midweek.
Christian Pulisic In, Mason Mount Out
Lampard decided to start with Mount in the league game against the Red Devils. However, his plan backfired after his young Chelsea side capitulated in the second half at Old Trafford. The Pensioners would be better off having their best players on the field. Hence, Lampard should choose to start with his new summer recruit, Pulisic as he has the potential to be a match-winner against the Reds of Merseyside tomorrow night.
Allow Olivier Giroud To Lead The Line Up Front
Giroud is an experienced striker who knows how to find the back of the net when a chance presents itself. Putting his faith in the youngster, Tammy Abraham could prove to be a costly mistake by Lampard, especially for a clash of such a high magnitude against the reigning champions of Europe.
The French striker’s vast experience and his ability to win matches, make him a vital member of the Chelsea squad. Thus, Lampard would be foolish not to hand him a start against Liverpool in midweek.
Play N’Golo Kante From The Start
There is no doubt that the Pensioners missed Kante’s presence in their midfield during the league clash versus Man United on Sunday. However, he should be ready to feature in the UEFA Super Cup and will be an essential member of the Chelsea midfield if Lampard decides to start with him tomorrow.
Kante will add some extra bite to the Pensioners midfield and will provide some much-needed cover for the Chelsea backline.
