If there was any doubt about whether the Uefa Super Cup ­mattered then the reaction of Frank Lampard said it all.

“It means a lot to the club,” the Chelsea head coach said before wincing at the ­memories.

“I know first hand because we lost two.

We lost [4-1] to Atletico Madrid [in 2012] in poor circumstances and we were far, far off and gave them the Super Cup.

We were unfortunate to lose [on penalties] to Bayern Munich [in 2013] … when you work hard to get into this game between two champions it is important that at a club like Chelsea we give everything to win it.” So for Super Frank the Super Cup, which Chelsea won in 1998 against Real Madrid, is very important.

The same applies to their opponents, Liverpool, in this fixture by the banks of the Bosporus ­between the European champions and the Europa League winners – the first time it has been contested by two English clubs – even if it comes so early in the campaign.

“Stay greedy,” is a phrase that ­Jurgen Klopp has used and it is to drive home the importance of not just winning one trophy – albeit the biggest – but to use that as a ­motivation, an incentive to win more.
