Liverpool beat Leicester City 1-0 at Anfield to end a three-game winless run and move into 8th place in the Premier League.
Emre Can started for the Reds and put on another hard-working performance especially in defence where he made the highest number of tackles (3) and the most interceptions (5) as well as a number of key blocks.
We took to Twitter to take a look at what Liverpool fans had to say about Can’s performance.
The 21-year-old drew a mixed reception ranging from being praised and credited with being the reason Leicester did not score to a fair bit of criticism and banter.
