Emre Can gives worst performance of the season against Stoke City

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can

Emre Can’s 40th appearance for Liverpool was one to forget. The Reds were hammered 6-1 against Stoke City at the Britannia on the final day of the Premier League season.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s 250th away appearance and final game for the club will go down as one of his less memorable games but Can’s performance was uncharacteristically poor.

Can scored a 4.21 rating according to Whoscored which was his lowest score of the season and the Reds worst performer on the day.

The 21-year-old started at right-back again in Brendan Rodgers defensive back-four.

The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder has been played out of position for much of the season. After successful filling in in the Reds back-three Can struggled to cope with playing as a right-back as part of a back-four.

Can only made 24 passes at a 79 percent accuracy and failed to make a single tackle or interception.

The Reds younsgter is expected to move into his preferred central midfield role next season following the departure of Gerrard in the summer.
