Emre Can was bright spark in Liverpool’s draw with West Brom in the Premier League yesterday.
The Red’s succumbed to a 2-2 draw with the Baggies despite taking the lead in the first half.
Jurgen Klopp positioned Can in midfield along with Jordan Henderson and James Milner. The Germany international has been a constant fixture in Liverpool’s midfield since the appointment of Klopp.
Can midfielder received a rating of 7.6 from WhoScored, the highest among Liverpool’s players.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man made four key passes, took one shot on target and maintained a passing accuracy of 86%.
Can man made the highest number of passes for his team and contributed defensively with three tackles and three interceptions.
Liverpool take on Watford next weekend in the Premier League as they look to return to winning ways.
Following the game we took to social media to see how Can’s performance went down with fans. The 21-year-old received a mixed reaction for his role in Liverpool’s draw with West Brom.

Emre Can should be playing center back

Emre was average today because there was no Lucas. In my opinion, Lucas has to start with Can and Hendo. Coutinho Lallana and Firmino front.

Three things we learnt today:
1) Emre Can makes a decent CB.
2) Origi deserves to start more than Benteke does.
3) We all love Lovren.
