Tonight will see the winners of last season’s Champions League face the winners of last season’s Europa League in Istanbul for the UEFA Super Cup, and Chelsea fans are far from confident ahead of facing Liverpool.

Chelsea vs Liverpool is the most played fixture between two English sides in the 21st century, as per Chelsea’s Twitter, and this will be the 60th meeting between the sides, although the first in the European Super Cup, with the Blues going into it off the back of a 4-0 defeat.
Whilst Frank Lampard’s Chelsea may be fresh off the back of a battering at Old Trafford on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have had longer to prepare for this tie having beaten Norwich in the Premier League opener on Friday night, putting four goals past the Canaries.
You can read the Blues’ verdict ahead of the game here:

Not expecting a win, but this team knows how to win a trophy and think we could be surprised, UTC

We are getting thrashed.. New coach needed

The Blues are far from confident going off the tweets above, but with a piece of silverware up for grabs it will certainly be a different dynamic to Sunday’s clash with Man United.
