Football pundit Gary Neville has revealed that he is looking forward to the Emre Can v Marouane Fellaini matchup when Liverpool take on Manchester United on Sunday.

“I think this is interesting [Can vs Fellaini]. You talk about Can and Fellaini where he plays, I’m sure that’s something they’ll will be thinking about – try and roughen him [Can] up a little bit,” Neville said speaking on Monday Night Football for Sky Sports.

Fellaini has been operating as a forward under Louis van Gaal over recent weeks despite being a defensive midfielder.

Can has also found himself being played out of position for much of the season.

The 21-year-old signed for Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer as a central midfielder but has played as a key component in the Reds defence.

Liverpool have not lost a league game in which Can has started in defence.

The Reds have won nine and drawn two of the league matches the 21-year-old has been given a start in.

Liverpool would overtake United and move into fourth place with a win on Sunday.
