Emre Can provides sublime first Liverpool assist [divider]
Liverpool came from behind to record a 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers in their FA Cup fourth round replay at the Macron Stadium on Wednesday night.
Coutinho stole the limelight with his stunning last minute winner but Emre Can also showcased his attacking prowess with a sublime assist to setup Raheem Sterling with the equaliser on 86 minutes.
The assist was Can’s first in a Liverpool shirt since joining from Bayer Leverkusen on a £9.75 million move in the summer.
Can started the game as a defender for the 10th game running but was pushed forward into a midfield position as Liverpool went in search of an equaliser.
The 21-year-old thrived in central midfield, his assiduousness and passing range helped the Reds in the final third and he showed what he can add to the attack when he hit the cross bar with a long range effort.
Can joined Liverpool as a central midfielder but has been used primarily as a defender by Brendan Rodgers.
