Thousands of Liverpool fans flooded the streets of Istanbul on Wednesday ahead of their side's UEFA Super Cup final against Chelsea.

In the hours leading up to kick-off, fans chanted, happily downed pints and let off flares just down the road from the Ataturk Stadium where Liverpool made history with their incredible comeback against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final.

The Reds claimed their sixth Champions League trophy last season, while Chelsea took home the Europa League to set up the Super Cup.

The first ever all-English UEFA Super Cup is scheduled to take kick off at 19:00GMT the Vodafone Park in Istanbul.
