The Premier League dominated in Europa last term and tonight will see the first ever all-English Super Cup.

Stephanie Frappart will make further history when she becomes the first female official to take charge of a major UEFA’s men competition showpiece.

Liverpool and Chelsea got their top-flight campaigns off to contrasting starts over the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds breezed past Norwich on Friday night to open up the new season while Chelsea were thrashed by Manchester United on Sunday.

Frank Lampard will be desperate to hit back from that disappointment but faces another huge task.

The 2019 Super Cup is being held at the 42,000-seater BJK Vodaphone Park in Instanbul meaning the Prem giants face a long trip ahead of this weekend’s second round of league fixtures.

But both will no doubt be eager to claim another trophy and talkSPORT will bring you all the action from Turkey.

Liverpool vs Chelsea: What has been said?

Liverpool midfielder James Milner: “I think [it’s] very important – I think you want to get in that habit of winning trophies.

“I think the Super Cup’s a special trophy to win because you’ve got to win a big trophy to get there as well, so I think it’s important.

“I think it’s a good way to start the season if you can win a trophy and it’s more silverware for the club if you can do that.”

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta: “Chelsea always fights for everything so when we don’t win then we know there will be more and more questions around us but we have to cope with it,’ added the defender.

“We have to learn, we know that we can improve and we have to take our responsibilities.

“There is a trophy to fight for on Wednesday against a good team so we have to be ready for it.”

Liverpool vs Chelsea: Team news

Liverpool will be without star goalkeeper Alisson after he picked up a calf injury in their win over Norwich.

Newly-signed back-up goalkeeper Adrian is set to make his first start, while Andy Lonergan, another recently acquired goalkeeper, has also been included in the 23-man squad.

Dejan Lovren is conspicuous by his absence as talk of a move to Roma rumbles on and Nathaniel Clyne is also a long-term injury absentee for the Reds.

For Chelsea, N’Golo Kante could feature as he continues his recovery from injury.

The Blues should also have Antonio Rudiger and Willian back but Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi are both out with Achilles injuries.
