Chelsea face Liverpool in UEFA Super Cup's first ever all-English affair

KUWAIT, Aug 14 (KUNA) -- The UEFA Super Cup takes center stage on Wednesday in an all-English affair as Champions League winners Liverpool take on Europa League champions Chelsea in the Turkish city of Istanbul.
The Reds are coming off an auspicious start to the new Premier League season with a 4-1 win over Norwich, while Frank Lampard's men were at the receiving end of a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United in a disheartening season-opener.
Liverpool have their sights set on their fourth Super Cup trophy in their sixth appearance in the annual contest, while the Blues are seeking their second title in the club's fourth Super Cup outing.
The trophy will be heading to England for the first time in 14 years in the first UEFA Super Cup final sans a Spanish team since 2008. (end) kns.asa.nam
