Liverpool will clash heads with Chelsea at the BJK Vodafone Park in Istanbul looking to lift the famous UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night. The Reds come into this game at the back of a 4-1 victory over Norwich City in the Premier League. Thus, they will fancy their chances of getting a positive result in midweek.
However, the Pensioners made a terrible start to their league campaign after they suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday. Frank Lampard will be desperate to witness his players bounce back and put in a much-improved display against the Reds of Merseyside.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and might make a few changes to his side for this crucial midweek encounter versus the West London outfit.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Chelsea
Adrian will start in goal for the Reds following Alisson Becker’s calf injury against Norwich City in the opening night of the Premier League season. The Spanish goalie will need help from Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip as the centre-half duo looks to step up and keep the Chelsea attackers at bay on Wednesday night.
Klopp might decide to give Joe Gomez some rest in midweek, but he is still expected to feature on the Liverpool bench. Trent Alexander-Arnold will operate at right-back as he tries to whip in some dangerous crosses into the Pensioners penalty box. Andrew Robertson will once again attempt to put in a tireless shift on the left flank.
The Merseyside outfit failed to keep a clean sheet against the Canaries. Therefore, this midweek game versus Lampard’s men could serve as an ideal opportunity for them to keep a shut-out and build some confidence at the back.
Klopp might decide to go with the midfield three of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and James Milner as the trio looks to put in a dominant shift at the centre of the park. Both Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are expected to be rested after their heavy involvement against Norwich City last Friday. However, Naby Keita should be available on Klopp’s bench and might come on during the clash if required.
Both Divock Origi and Mohamed Salah will operate as the wingers while Roberto Firmino spearheads the Liverpool attack up top. Sadio Mane is slowly but surely coming back to full fitness. The Senegalese speedster might start on the Reds bench and is expected to come on in the second half if needed.
Origi and Salah had a terrific game versus Norwich last week when both players found the back of the net. Hence, they will be oozing with confidence heading into this midweek clash.
