Team news

Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp will definitely be without two players for the UEFA Super Cup clash.

Nathaniel Clyne is a long-term absentee, with the former Crystal Palace defender suffering an ACL injury in pre-season, which has ruled him out for around six months.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Alisson Becker went off injured on Friday as Liverpool started the new Premier League season with a 4-1 win against Norwich City.

Klopp revealed afterwards that he had suffered a calf injury, and that he would not be available on Wednesday, with former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian likely to start instead.

Meanwhile, midfielder Naby Keita is a doubt for the game after limping out of training in Istanbul ahead of the game.

Liverpool squad: Adrian, Lonergan, Kelleher, Hoever, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Matip, Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Milner, Elliott, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Brewster, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Origi.

Chelsea

Four players are currently ruled out for Chelsea.

Reece James, Marco van Ginkel, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Callum Hudson-Odoi are currently sidelined with injuries.

But the Blues will have to make a later decision on N’Golo Kante, after he came off the bench in the 4-0 win against Manchester United on Sunday despite a lack of action in pre-season.

Meanwhile, Willian is likely to start on the bench having had a hamstring strain, while Antonio Rudiger has been named in the squad, but is unlikely to feature.
