Emre Can to miss Liverpool clash with Newcastle

Liverpool fans Emre Can Christian Benteke

Emre Can will miss Liverpool’s clash with Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend due to a suspension.

The 21-year-old picked up a yellow card during the Red’s 6-1 victory over Southampton in the League Cup.

Can has been in impressive form of late and has been a prominent part of Liverpool’s midfield since the arrival of manager Jurgen Klopp.


The Germany international provided an assist during Liverpool’s mid-week victory.

England international Daniel Sturridge found the back of the net twice in the first half while Derek Origi scored a hat-trick. Jordon Ibe scored Liverpool’s remaining goal.

The 21-year-old now has one assist and one goal for Liverpool in 21 appearances this season. Liverpool have the chance to move up into 5th place if they record a victory this weekend.
