UEFA Super Cup Preview: Liverpool vs Chelsea To Watch Online Soccer Streams, TV Channel, Team News
Liverpool and Chelsea meet in the first all-English UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul on Wednesday.
Liverpool returns to the scene of their most dramatic European triumph when they face Chelsea in Istanbul for the Super Cup on Wednesday, the first major men’s European final to be refereed by a woman.
For any Liverpool fan, Istanbul brings back memories of the thrilling comeback from 3-0 down to win the Champions League final against AC Milan in 2005.

The Super Cup is little more than a ceremonial opener for the new European season, but a win could give Champions League winner Liverpool and already struggling Europa League winners Chelsea some valuable early-season momentum.
For Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, it’s a chance to continue a strong start to the season after their 4-1 thrashing of Norwich on the opening day of the Premier League on Friday.
Chelsea must bounce back from a 4-0 loss to Manchester United, but new manager Frank Lampard must contend with what he called another “small injury” to midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Liverpool are unbeaten against English teams in Europe over six games stretching back to 2009, when they lost a Champions League quarter-final to Chelsea.
Last season’s success has meant a busy start to the season for Liverpool.
Having played in the Community Shield, the Reds then opened the Premier League season on Friday Night Football against Norwich. Their trip to Istanbul is followed by a Premier League match at Southampton at 3pm on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp named the same starting XI for the clash against Norwich as he did against Manchester City in the Community Shield, but will he make changes and potentially prioritise the Premier League?
There will definitely be a change in goal as Alisson is out with a thigh injury, meaning summer signing Adrian will make his first start.
