Just checking… would it be okay to suggest Emre Can was a contender for Man-of-Match, too? #yessakhowasgoodaswell

Considering the amount of money Liverpool have spent on transfers recently £10 million for Can is starting to look like a bargain.
We brought Emre Can for under £10M. He's becoming one of the most effective central midfielders in the Premier League – at such a young age.

Can has been called everything from Chan to Tank but there is a new nickname in town. The young midfielder has been named the ‘colossus’.
Emre Can brilliant once again. Goes from strength to strength. The man is a colossus. An engine that never stops running.
