Andy Robertson is expecting a ‘tough game’ when Liverpool face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday.
Speaking ahead of the tie in Turkey, Liverpool full-back Robertson said that he is anticipating a ‘tough’ encounter against a new-look Chelsea side, who are under new management, as Frank Lampard tries to cope with the clubs ongoing transfer-ban as well as the loss of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
“[They’ve had] a change of manager, they’ve lost [Eden] Hazard and they’ve brought in [Christian] Pulisic, made a couple of signings.
“Obviously they’re probably a wee bit more reliant on youth players, but they’ve got fantastic youth players that have went out and done it a very high level, so they’ll be ready to make the jump and Frank Lampard did a very good job at Derby.
“So we’ll be looking for a tough game, maybe a wee bit different to the Chelsea we faced last season but it’ll be interesting to see what they’re like.
“We know how hard a game against Chelsea is, so we won’t be shocked by that and we need to be ready to match their work-rate and match their skill.”
