Liverpool midfielder Emre Can will be hoping he plays against Burnley after being dropped for the last five Premier League games.

Can has not started for the Reds since a strong performance against Chelsea a month ago.

The last time Can played Premier League football was in the 3-1 loss against Crystal Palace. The 20-year-old came on as a substitute on 74 minutes.

Can has received limited playing time this season despite joining on a £10.5 million move from Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

The young midfielder has only played 16 minutes in Liverpool’s last eight games in all competition.

Can is eligible to represent Germany and Turkey at international level.

Both national team setups are reported to want him and Joachim Low is set to call Can up to the German national team according to the Bild.
