I’ve seen some fans undermining the importance of the Super Cup and I don’t quite understand why.

Unlike the Community Shield which is effectively a glorified friendly, the Super Cup is recognised as a competitive fixture by UEFA and should therefore be treated as such.

It’s a return to the home of arguably the greatest night in Liverpool’s history tomorrow evening as they head to Istanbul to face Europa League winners Chelsea in the Super Cup.

While our priorities will always be the league and Champions League, it’s still a first opportunity to win silverware and hopefully set the tone for the rest of the season.

A chance to win the first of six potential trophies this season, it won’t be an occasion Liverpool will be looking to take lightly; with it marking the first ever encounter between two English sides in the competition, history is set to be made.

I expect this to be relatively straightforward given Chelsea’s performance against United.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea (a moderate loss for the Blues in the circumstances) Whilst the Super Cup may not be the most coveted trophy on offer, silverware this early in the campaign could be pivotal in acting as a morale boosting springboard for the rest of the season and for that reason I see Jurgen Klopp taking this game very seriously.
