UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool on Wednesday defeated Premier League rivals Chelsea to lift the UEFA Super Cup.

Jurgen Klopp’s side clinches their first silverware of this season after a hard-fought 5-4 penalty victory over The Blues.

Former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud gave Chelsea the lead in the first half, before Sadio Mane equalized.

Mane then registered his double in extra time, but Jorginho rolled in a penalty after Tammy Abraham was brought down by Adrian.

Abraham however turned villain, as he was the only player to miss a penalty during the shoot-out.
