What are they saying?

Frank Lampard has challenged Chelsea to "give it everything" in the match.

"We need to be absolutely ready," Lampard told uefa.com. "It's a cup that the club desperately wants to win. I've never won it, a lot of players in there have never won it, so we have to give it everything.

"Going up against the team with the quality of Liverpool in a final is as tense as finals can be.

"You can lose finals; they're very tough. But what you cannot do is lose it on the premise that we weren't prepared, or we didn't have that hunger or desire or everything you need to try and win a game of this magnitude.

"It's going to be one of my first competitive games as manager of this club.

"Every player in there needs to be aware of the importance of the game to this club and we have to give everything, because it's going to be tough.

"It's going to be tough, but we cannot walk off the pitch and think, 'Oh, we could've done that' or 'We missed that opportunity' or 'We weren't quite ready' or make any excuses for ourselves."

Jurgen Klopp will not be taking Frank Lampard's side lightly, even after their 4-0 defeat at Manchester United on Sunday.

"I didn't know that everybody expects us to win. So far we could avoid that information until you told me. No problem for us what people think around us.

"We respect Chelsea a lot, saw the game against Manchester United and if you saw the game without the result you would have no idea how the game was because the game was really a very good game.

"They had a few changes: new manager, lost Eden Hazard, brought in young players like (Tammy) Abraham, Mason Mount. They are a really interesting team.

"Frank did an outstanding job at Derby last year, changed the football there. Being a good football side in the Championship is really difficult, unlucky at the end against Aston Villa to get promoted.

"Now he is at Chelsea, his club, everything is fresh, everybody is ready and on their toes. They will be 100 per cent ready and we have to make sure we are ready too.

"Everything that doesn't help us to win the game you have to ignore."

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

What are the odds?

Liverpool 8/11

Chelsea 9/2

Draw 16/5

What is our prediction?

Livepool opened their Premier League campaign strongly with a 4-1 win over Norwich while Chelsea slumped to a 4-0 loss at Old Trafford.

There were still positives for Lampard to take away from that loss to Manchester United but defensively they'll need to improve if they are to contain Liverpool's firepower.

Chelsea also look lightweight in attack so we're swaying with Liverpool on this occasion. 

Prediction: Liverpool 2 Chelsea 0
