The English Premier League’s sudden dominance over Europe continues when UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool FC faces English rivals Chelsea FC in the first all-England UEFA Super Cup match in the trophy’s 44-year history, according to UEFA. Chelsea FC was the winner of last season’s Europa League in the annual UEFA Super Cup. But for new Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard, the game represents a chance at instant redemption after his team absorbed an ignominious 4-0 thumping over the weekend at the hands of Manchester United in the domestic league opener. But Lampard, nonetheless, said that he is “optimistic” heading into Super Cup showdown, a game that will live stream from Istanbul.

Coming off the bench in the 58th minute over the weekend, Pulisic proved largely ineffective as a seemingly overwhelmed Chelsea squad quickly saw United double their lead from 2-0 to 4-0, which turned out to be the final score.
For Liverpool, though the team’s personnel has undergone a complete turnover in the past 14 years, the club, nonetheless, returns to the site of perhaps its greatest moment, the 2005 “Miracle of Istanbul.” Back then, Liverpool overcame a 3-0 halftime deficit against AC Milan to level the score in the UEFA Champions League final, then winning the European Cup in a penalty shootout, as Goal records.
“Nobody will forget 2005, but we are different people, we aren’t the same,” Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp said on Tuesday. “We are the 2019/20 team – a very good one too!”
An all-English Super Cup was destined last season when four England teams advanced to the finals of the Champions League and Europa League with Tottenham Hotspur losing to Liverpool in the top-tier final, and Arsenal was defeated by Chelsea in the Europa League.
