Chelsea Vs Liverpool Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush brings you the Dream11 prediction between Chelsea and Liverpool.
Liverpool will take on Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in Vodafone Arena, Istanbul on Wednesday. The Reds bagged the Champions League, while the Blues were the Europa League Champions.
It was a contrast for both the sides, as one won the game convincingly and other lost the game in a horrendous manner in the opening weekend of the Premier League. Liverpool beat 4-1 against Norwich City, whereas, Chelsea lost 4-0 to Manchester United.
Liverpool head into this game as utmost favourites, but Chelsea could match them because of Frank Lampard’s dynamic tactics. It will be an interesting game, nonetheless.
We shall look at the Dream11 team for the game between Liverpool and Chelsea.
LIVERPOOL PREDICTED STARTING LINEUP:
Adrian, Trent Alexander Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino.
CHELSEA PREDICTED STARTING LINEUP
Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Emerson Palmieri, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley, Pedro, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud.
LIVERPOOL VS CHELSEA DREAM11 PREDICTED LINEUP
Adrian: Liverpool’s number 1 Alisson Becker will be out for the next few weeks. Adrian will take over his place in between the sticks against Chelsea. The shot-stopper has a better defence in front of him and the chances of him keeping a clean sheet are higher than Kepa.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will serve as a major creativity hub for his side. The English International notched up 16 assists last season and could have his say in the final third of the pitch.
Virgil Van Dijk: Liverpool’s most important player is Virgil Van Dijk currently. The former Southampton defender is the linchpin in the backline for the Reds, who kept most clean sheets in the Premier League last season. He’s a fantastic ballplayer and has the habit of scoring goals from set-pieces as well.
Andy Robertson: Similar to Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson has been important to Liverpool’s creativity. Since full-backs are given freedom to roam around the pitch, the left-back has the habit of interlinking with the forwards and rile up his numbers in the final third.
Emerson Palmieri: Emerson Palmieri is Chelsea’s most resolute defender. The left-back does not bomb forward and likes to sit back with the defence and bail the defenders out. He can chip in goals from set-pieces too.
Jorginho: Jorginho was one of the best players on the pitch against Manchester United, but defenders let them down by going to sleep. Although the Italian threads the ball to the forwards and attacking midfielders, his slow nature has caused trouble, more often than not. He wins possessions and takes penalties as well.
Mateo Kovacic: Mateo Kovacic is susceptible defensively, but making plenty of forward runs to assist the forwards. He can contribute to goals when the winger has a breakneck pace. He’s known for his looping balls and can pick out his teammates for fun.
Sadio Mane (VC): Sadio Mane failed to start in the last game of the Premier League. The Senegalese International has trained nearly ten days to get back to his original fitness. The former Southampton forward looked sharp after coming on and contributes towards the final third.
Mohamed Salah (C): Mohamed Salah, who found the back of the net once against Norwich, scored a wonder goal against Chelsea in Anfield four months before. He continues to torment through the left-hand side of the defence, although his finishing has been far from better.
Olivier Giroud: Olivier Giroud has fantastic track record against Liverpool and is likely to get the nod ahead of Tammy Abraham. He wins plenty of aerial duels and his linkup with the wingers will be a crucial aspect for Chelsea to break the resilient Liverpool’s defence.
Roberto Firmino: Roberto Firmino operates behind Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. The Brazilian is a tireless forward, making runs behind the defenders and tracking back, when required. He’s pivotal to Liverpool’s style of play and can cause havoc if he manages to finish off chances.
