Emre Can played the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s surprise 3-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.

The Merseyside club looked set to record a comfortable home victory when Adam Lallana found the back of the net 26 minutes into the game.

The games turning point came just before half time when Jason Puncheon scored a close range free-kick.

Can received a rating of 7.53 , the highest of any Liverpool player on the day. The 21-year-old made eight tackles, one interception and four clearances.

The Germany U21 international also made a total of 67 passes and maintained a passing accuracy of 83.6%.
