Liverpool eye Chelsea scalp in Super Cup

Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum

After losing on penalties to Manchester City in the Community Shield, Liverpool began their league campaign with a comfortable 4-1 win over Norwich City with Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi all scoring.

Jürgen Klopp expects Andy Lonergan to join #LFC on a short-term basis following the calf injury sustained by Alisson Becker.

"I think the main thing in our minds is that we still see ourselves as underdogs, we still see ourselves as a hungry team that hasn't achieved what we want to achieve yet".

"So we'll be looking for a tough game, maybe a wee bit different to the Chelsea we faced last season but it'll be interesting to see what they're like".

Virgil van Dijk believes goalkeeper Adrián San Miguel's extensive Premier League experience will help him easily adjust to replacing the injured Alisson at Liverpool.

That will come as some relief given Liverpool's keeper shortage, with former West Ham back-up Adrian set to deputise.

The Champions League winners take on Europa League title holders Chelsea in the showpiece game at Besiktas Park in Istanbul on Wednesday night.

The traditional curtain-raiser to the European season may not be taken entirely seriously by everyone, but neither club will turn their noses up at the chance of lifting more silverware, with Liverpool having just ended a seven-year trophy drought and Frank Lampard eager to kick-start his Chelsea managerial career. I didn't speak to [goalkeeping coach] John [Achterberg] yet about that.

"We will be able to make good connections with him and I think a lot of the lads have made bonds with him already because he's such a good lad off the pitch".

Brazil global Alisson was replaced by summer signing Adrian six minutes before the break in the Norwich game with his side already leading 3-0.

Alisson's loss for an extended period would be a big blow to the club he joined from Roma a year ago.

"But he is not in for the next few weeks".
