Chelsea vs Liverpool Team news And provisional starting line up


What is the team news?

Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker’s injury will keep him out for “the next few weeks”. Summer signing Adrian is prime position to take Becker’s place for the Super Cup clash. The 32-year-old made 125 league appearances for West Ham United before being released at the end of last season.

Lampard’s side has been hindered by Chelsea’s ban from the transfer market. Chelsea’s opening match against Norwich exposed some key weaknesses, with Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen looking far from solid in the centre of defence.

Midfielder N’Golo Kante needs assessing after picking up a fresh knock at the weekend. Frank Lampard confirmed the substitute picked up an unspecified issue in the 4-0 loss to Manchester United, but the France international did train with the group on the eve of the match.

Willian will be on the bench as he steps up his return to fitness, while defender Antonio Rudiger is unlikely to play despite being brought to Turkey.

Provisional 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

Provisional Chelsea squad:Arrizabalaga, Caballero, Cumming, Alonso, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Emerson, Zouma, Christensen, Zappacosta, Tomori, Kenedy, Kovacic, Kante, Jorginho, Gilmour, Barkley, Mount, Pedro, Willian, Pulisic, Batshuayi, Giroud, Abraham
