Chelsea asking most of the questions late in this one. Any goal now will surely be the winner, though it's looking more like this will be settled by a penalty shoot-out.
Chelsea come again and Pedro curves just wide of the bottom corner from 25 yards out after a super turn into space.
SAVE! Mount lets fly from distance, but Adrian does well to push it to safety.

Zouma makes late run into the middle but can't keep his header down to convert a left-wing corner.
Will we have a winner in normal time? Both sides are probing for it.

Kante drifts to the right byline and picks out Pedro, but the Spaniard's first-time shot is brilliantly blocked by van Dijk.
Salah sees his curling effort from the free kick deflect off the wall and fly over the bar.

Lovely build up from Chelsea. Pedro leads the counter along with Kovacic and Emerson. It's fed to Pulisic who sees a shot from 20-yards well blocked.
Chelsea readying their first change. Mason Mount is amongst those warming up.
DID YOU KNOW? Lampard appeared in two of Chelsea’s three previous Super Cup finals as a player, losing both (4-1 to Atletico Madrid in 2012 and on 5-4 penalties against Bayern Munich in the following year).
STAT: We will see an 8th English victory in this competition tonight. Liverpool have won three with one each for Aston Villa, Chelsea, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest.

- OnGeorginio WijnaldumLiverpool
LIVERPOOL CHANGE: Milner off, Wijnaldum on.
Giroud races onto a long ball over the top but sees his attempt well blocked by van Dijk. It wouldn't have counted though. The flag was up.
It's all Liverpool in this second half.
Firmino is loving this. He drives at the Chelsea defence and looks to play a one-two with Salah on the right. The Egyptian tries to thread it back into the path of his fellow frontman, but it's just too far in front of his run.
More good play from Firmino in the build up to that chance there. Henderson unlucky to sees the power of that shot nullified by a deflection.
Mane powers down the left and plays it in to the path of Henderson, who sees his shot from the edge of the box saved by Kepa.
Liverpool look a different side with Firmino in the team. He holds it up well and lays it off for Fabinho to drill a 25-yard effort wide.
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! Liverpool pull level. Firmino makes an immediate impact, prodding a lovely touch past Kepa to set up Mane for a simple tap-in after the forward had reacted first to Fabinho's lofted pass over the top.
No doubt who the best player was in the first period.

KICK OFF! Chelsea restart the contest.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea. Giroud's strike separates the sides at the break.
One minute added.
Wonderful pace from Pulisic as he races down the left, cuts inside past Matip and Gomez before rifling a low shot into the bottom corner. He looks delighted, but has the smile wiped off his face by the sight of the flag. OFFSIDE - and VAR confirms it. Still 1-0.
VIDEO: Giroud nets the opener.
That goal came from another counter attack where Kante broke up the play, powered forward and set up Pulisic to go on and provide a lovely assist for Giroud.
Kante has been the best player on the pitch so far.
So, Giroud gets the honour of scoring the first competitive goal of the Lampard era. Chelsea will feel they deserve that.
- GoalOlivier GiroudChelsea
GOAL! The Europa League winners lead. Giroud is given too much space to surge into the left of the area and coolly fire Pulisic's pass beyond Adrian.
So far, so good for Adrian. He's been solid and made a couple of decent saves, including a very important one just a moment ago.
Pedro with a delightful pass for Kovacic, who races clear on Adrian but can't find a way beyond the Liverpool stopper. Super save.
Kante drifts to the right, turns his man before nutmegging another opponent to maintain possession for his team.
Mane is left completely free to attack a right-wing corner ,but sees his header hit a teammate before falling kindly for Kepa. Chelsea are creaking a bit defending Liverpool's set pieces.
Van Dijk meets Milner's left-wing corner ahead of Kepa, who is relieved to see the Dutch defender's header loop over the top of his unguarded goal.
The Blues counter well once more. Pedro feeds Pulisic on the left of the box. He creates a yard of space for a dangerous, low cross-shot, but there is no Chelsea player making the run to the far post for what would have been a simple tap-in.
Chelsea continuing to ask questions of this Liverpool defence. Giroud reacts quickest to a loose, high ball in the box, but sees acrobatic overhead attempt fly wide.
OFF THE BAR! Pedro plays a one-two with Giroud and races into the left side of the box before seeing his rising shot cannon back off the bar.
Chelsea have caused Liverpool a number of concerns without really finding that cutting edge at the right moment. This time Pedro's diagonal run in-behind is tracked by Robertson, who recovers brilliantly to get across the Spaniard and deny him a strike at goal.
Chelsea respond with a quick-fire counter attack, but Giroud takes his shot a tad too early and it never looks like troubling Adrian.
The first real chance of the match falls for Salah. The Egyptian surges free and runs into the area from the right but sees his low effort well saved by Kepa.
Excellent defending from Christensen as he dives at full length to head Henderson's dangerous right-wing cross to safety, with Mane lurking just behind him.
STAT: Liverpool have failed to score in only three of the last 23 league and cup meetings with Chelsea.
Pedro cuts in from the right but sees his curling 25-yard effort flash wide of the far post.
Liverpool work a free kick short. Salah eventually lifts it into a packed area before it falls for Fabinho in acres of space on the left side of the box. The Brazilian looks to dig out a shot, but it's easy for Kepa from that angle and a couple of red shirts in the middle show their disappointment that he didn't look for the cross.
DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool were the last English club to win the Super Cup back in 2005. Two Premier League teams have lost in four finals since - Manchester United (2008 & 2017), Chelsea (2012 & 2013).
Matip rises highest to meet a left-wing corner at the far post, but his knockdown can't find Mane and Kepa is able to gather.
Henderson with some fine energetic play down the right. He sends over a lovely cross towards Mane, who sees his bicycle kick hit Andreas Christensen. Mane appeals for a hand ball, but the referee isn't interested and there is no intervention from VAR.
Chelsea with most of the ball in the very early exchanges. Pulisic looks to use his pace to burst free down the left, but Matip is across to make an important tackle.
HEAD-TO-HEAD in Europe: Chelsea 3 wins, Liverpool 2 wins, 5 draws.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Liverpool get us underway in the 2019 UEFA Super Cup final.
DID YOU KNOW? The teams last met in Europe in 2009 when Chelsea won a Champions League quarter-final tie 7-5 on aggregate.
The warm up is all done for both sides. Not long now.
Pedro will join Pulisic and Giroud in a front three that will hope to cause Virgil van Dijk and co plenty of problems this evening. Here's what the Spaniard had to say about the Reds' Dutch centre back in the pre-match media conference.
Mane: "For sure, I am ready to start. Let's do this. Tiredness is only here [points to his head]. I don't think I have had a holiday in seven years, so I'm used to it."
There are some landmark appearances in the Liverpool line-up tonight.
This is Liverpool's sixth appearance in this final. The Reds have lifted it on three occasions, in 1977, 2001 and 2005. The Merseysiders lost in 1978 and 1984. Only AC Milan (5), Barcelona (5) and Real Madrid (4) have won it won than Liverpool.
STAT: This is Chelsea's fourth appearance in the UEFA Super Cup. The Blues' solitary success came in 1998.
Klopp:"They (Chelsea) are really strong and young and fresh and everything is exciting because Frank, a club legend, is new at the club and will want to make a name for himself as Chelsea manager. It will be really interesting and it's a really important game."
Lampard: "It means a lot to the club, I know that because I lost two finals. I understand the feeling of when you work hard to get into this game, that you give your all to try to win it. It's another trophy for the club and will give us a feeling that if we can beat Liverpool and win a cup, we can go on from there."
It's a big night for France's Stephanie Frappart. She will make history tonight as the 35-year-old becomes the first woman to referee a major European men's final.
Frank Lampard has opted for three changes to his Chelsea side following their heaviest ever opening-day defeat in 104 league seasons when they were beaten 4-0 at Manchester United. It sees Christian Pulisic make his first Chelsea start, while N'Golo Kante has been passed fit to feature despite fears he would have to miss out through injury. Olivier Giroud also comes in to lead the line in place of Tammy Abraham.
Liverpool make five changes from their 4-1 win over Norwich. It sees Sadio Mane start with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and goalkeeper, Adrian also in the first XI. Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divock Origi are among the players that drop to the bench.
