Liverpool’s Emre Can reflects on his goal against Chelsea


Emre Can has spoken to about his goal against Chelsea ahead of the Carlin Cup clash tonight.

The 21-year-old scored his first goal for Liverpool against Chelsea when the two sides met back in November.

Can scored Liverpool’s only goal in their 2-1 defeat against the Blues that day.

Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield for the first leg of of the Carlin Cup semi final at 19:45 GMT.

“It was incredible, you can’t describe it,” Can told reflecting on the emotion of that goal.

“I scored the goal and I think it’s the best feeling as a player you could ever have. 

“To be honest I was thinking about this in the car the other day; I scored the goal against Chelsea and it would be great to repeat that again this time, but the most important thing is to beat them.

“Hopefully we will do that – we will give everything in this cup tie.”

Can also talked about his dream of playing a final at Wembley.

“I have had the fortune to be at Wembley once before,” he explained. “I didn’t play myself but I watched Bayern against Dortmund [2013 Champions League final].

“It’s an incredible stadium and I want to play there. I hope we can get there by winning the semi-final.”

Liverpool have won five and drawn two of their last seven fixtures in all competitions, with the 21-year-old playing some part in all but one of those games.

Can joined the Reds on a £9.75 million move from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

The 21-year-old has made 14 appearances in all competitions for the Reds this season.
