During pre-match conference, Lampard explained such determination: "It's a cup that the club desperately wants to win. I've never won it, a lot of players in there have never won it, so we have to give it everything.
"I know first hand because I lost two Super Cup finals. We lost to Atlético in poor circumstances when we were far, far off and gave them the Super Cup. We were unfortunate to lose to [Bayern] Munich. When you work hard to get into this game between two champions it is important at a club like Chelsea that you give everything to win it.
"It means something to us as a club because it is another trophy and, for me, it would be a really nice start personally. But more than that it would give a really good feeling for the players with the season coming up that we can compete with Liverpool. If we win a cup that goes down in our history it gives the belief that we can go on from there. Certainly we understand the importance of it.
"Going up against the team with the quality of Liverpool in a final is as tense as finals can be."
