Emre Can will not start for Liverpool against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has been dropped from the starting lineup for the fourth Premier League game in a row.

Can has not played for the past five game all in all competitions since a strong performance against Chelsea a month ago.

The 20-year-old moved to Liverpool on a £9.75m deal from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

Can turned down the opportunity to return to Bayern when he signed for Liverpool this summer from Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayern had a buy-back clause for their former player but the 20-year-old midfielder opted for a move to Liverpool instead.
