It will seem awfully early in the year to be thinking about European football (unless you are a Wolves fan), but Liverpools face-off with Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup has a wonderful texture to it — an interesting curtain-raiser to the continental soccer season.
Champions League winners Liverpool picked up from where they left off campaign, putting newly-promoted Norwich. In what had been a opening screen for Frank Lampard to digest chelsea, that naturally maintained the Europa League title, were very much on the receiving end of a demolition job at Old Trafford. The barefaced stats look OK as far as Chelsea are concerned, however a 2.18-1.33 xG shortage informs a more damning narrative; Chelsea had plenty of attempts, but David de Gea was seldom stretched. ??
It needs to be pretty fascinating on Wednesday, however, the result is beyond any doubt in my view; Chelsea defended badly against Manchester United, and while they did threaten the hosts early , it is not sufficient to convince me they will lay much of a glove on Jurgen Klopps guys.
