Storylines

Liverpool: The Reds are the favorite in this one and have two days more rest. Sadio Mane could get the start after not being featured in the XI on Friday. He came on as a second-half substitute. The Reds should be able to create quite enough chances on a Blues’ defense that struggled to keep shape on Sunday.

Chelsea: It’s back to the drawing board for Frank Lampard after a poor showing against United, specifically in the second half. N’Golo Kante is needed in the middle but hasn’t been 100 percent. Don’t be shocked if he prioritizes rest here with upcoming Premier League action next weekend against Leicester City. Though this is a chance at a trophy, Lampard may need to use this match to test out a couple things, especially in attack. 

Prediction

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both score as Liverpool wins the Super Cup.

Pick: Liverpool 2, Chelsea 0
