Lampard’s Chelsea Loses Super Cup to Liverpool on Penalties as Mane Scores Brace

Jurgen Klopp-led Liverpool Football Club have lifted the UEFA Super Cup trophy following their 2-2 ( on penalties) victory over 2018/19 UEFA Europa League winners Chelsea, at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul Turkey.

Goals from Oliver Giroud for Chelsea and Saido Mane for Liverpool in either half ensured the game got into extra time. Mane scored for Liverpool again but a Jorginho equalizer from the spot meant the game was to be settled by the lottery of penalties.

Liverpool would go on to win the penalty shootouts 5-4 as Tammy Abraham missed the only spot kick of ten played.

Jurgen Klopp made a few changes to the side that beat Norwich last Friday, with Joe Gomez, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane, replacing Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi.
