Liverpool made light work of La Liga champions Barcelona winning 4-0 at Wembley in front of 89,845 supporters.
Reds star Emre Can started against Barca and we took a look at how fans reacted to his display.
Going into the game a few rival fan accounts were teasing Liverpool about fielding players like Can and Jordan Henderson against Messi and co… well we all know who got the last laugh.
I bet the thought of Emre Can and Jordan Henderson has Messi and co trembling https://t.co/ysKXqwd26Y

Can has gone from strength to strength since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen and is bound to keep his place in the team next season.
Divock Origi and Emre Can. 2 players who are going to be absolute stars in their prime.

Grujic has looked naughty all preseason in fairness.
He's a future ugly Emre Can.

Can’s display generally was very well received.
@ajvlfc Emre Can and Sturridge are best on my list.

And now onto the important matters… Can has obviously not lost his appeal on female – and male – supporters based on his looks.
Emre can is unreal 😍😍😍😍😍

It is only fitting we give the fans what they want.
