Liverpool kicked off their 2015-16 Premier League season with a win against Stoke City.
The Red’s exacted revenge following their 6-1 mulling in the final game of last season against the Potters.
Emre Can was left of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodger’s starting lineup but came on as a substitute for Adam Lallana in the second half.
The 21-year-old received a rating of 6.39 from Whoscored. The Germany u21 international made one key tackler and an interception after coming off the bench. Can also maintained a passing accuracy of 91%.
Philippe Coutinho scored the games only goal with a stunning strike from outside the area.
The Red’s did not have the best record at the Britannia. The Reds had won just two of their last seven away games against Stoke in all competitions until today.
Summer signings Benteke, Milner and Clyne all made their Liverpool debuts today. Liverpool take on Bournemouth next weekend at Anfield.
Emre Can made an unreal sliding challenge towards the end of the game, did any one else see it?

Credit Lovren today. Was solid. Hope he builds on it. Emre Can also just brings a level of calm, cool and assurance. Made a difference

Also shoutout to Emre Can. Changed the game & made that match saving tackle late in the match.
