Liverpool vs Chelsea

Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently preparing for their UEFA Super Cup meeting with Chelsea.

The Premier League rivals are set to go head-to-head in Istanbul tomorrow night, after clinching Champions League and Europa League glory respectively last season.

Liverpool will be looking to build on their positive start to the Premier League campaign this past weekend, after the Reds put Norwich City to the sword by 4 goals to 1.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will hope for an immediate bounce-back display, having been thumped 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening:

And the Blues now appear to have been dealt a boost in their hopes of doing just that.

This boost, meanwhile, comes in the form of a major concern for Liverpool on the personnel front.

As per David Maddock of the Mirror, Naby Keita was forced out of the Merseysiders’ training session this evening.

The Guinean is said to have picked up what looked to be ‘a muscle problem’, before being helped down the tunnel by a Liverpool physio:

This of course comes just 24 hours after Jurgen Klopp confirmed that goalkeeper Alisson is set to be sidelined for ‘the next few weeks’ with a calf issue:
