Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has predicted a ‘tough’ clash when his side tackle Liverpool in Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup final in Turkey.


He also said that his players need to be absolutely ready to face Jurgen Klopp’s side at the Vodafone Arena.


Lampard’s men head to the game after losing 4-0 to Manchester United in the Premier League over the weekend, while Liverpool defeated Norwich City 4-1.


“We need to be absolutely ready,” Lampard told UEFA’s official website.


“It’s a cup that the club desperately wants to win. I’ve never won it, a lot of players in there have never won it, so we have to give it everything.


“Going up against the team with the quality of Liverpool in a final is as tense as finals can be.


“You can lose finals; they’re very tough. But what you cannot do is lose it on the premise that we weren’t prepared, or we didn’t have that hunger or desire or everything you need to try and win a game of this magnitude.


“It’s going to be one of my first competitive games as manager of this club.


“Every player in there needs to be aware of the importance of the game to this club and we have to give everything, because it’s going to be tough.


“It’s going to be tough, but we cannot walk off the pitch and think, ‘Oh, we could’ve done that’ or ‘We missed that opportunity’ or ‘We weren’t quite ready’ or make any excuses for ourselves.”
