I'm confused: What is the UEFA Super Cup and why are Liverpool and Chelsea playing in it?

UEFA Super Cup is the winner of last seasons UEFA Champions League (Liverpool) and UEFA Europa Cup (Chelsea)

Other countries also usually have Super Cups at the beginning of the season between the winner of the league (top of the table at end of the season) and the cup winner (knockout style competition)

That was an entertaining match. You could tell it was going to be lost on that deciding kick.

As someone who's watched far too much West Ham (because they're the local team on EastEnders; don't judge me), it was nice to see Adrian do well.

Now we have more trophies than ManU again and all is good with the world.
