Can joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen on a £9.75 million move this summer.

The 21-year-old joined as a central midfielder but has played most of the season as a key member of Brendan Rodgers back-three.

Rodgers was forced to use a back-four against Newcastle United tonight due to the suspension of Martin Skrtel and injury to Mamadou Sakho.

Can started in a back-four alongside Dejan Lovren for the first time this season and contributed towards the Reds keeping their first clean sheet in two games.

The Liverpool youngster has made a total of 33 appearances in all competitions for the Reds this season.
