Istanbul, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 15th Aug, 2019 ) :N'Golo Kante has shaken off a knock to start for Chelsea in Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul against Liverpool, for whom Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain makes a first start since April 2018.
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard had said Kante was a doubt for the game after a summer plagued by fitness issues, but the Frenchman starts in one of three changes following Sunday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.
Oxlade-Chamberlain starts for the first time since recovering from a serious knee injury that ruled him out of almost the entirety of last season.
Roberto Firmino is a substitute for the European champions, while Adrian starts in goal in the absence of the injured Alisson Becker.
