Emre Can played the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s disappointing defeat at the hands of West Ham United.
Slaven Bilic recorded his third successive victory over the Reds following their 2-0 win at West Ham at Upton Park.
Can started for Liverpool and put in a typical hard-working performance. The 21-year-old completed the highest number of passes for his side (78) but at a disappointing 79 percent accuracy.
The Germany international also contributed to attacking moves and was the main creative outlet pulling off six key passes and he even hit the post.
Liverpool take on Stoke City in the semi-final’s of the League Cup on Tuesday and face Exeter City is the FA Cup next weekend.
Can has provided one assist and one goal in 27 appearances for Liverpool this season.
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.
Emre Can isn't quite ready to be the main man in midfield. He need's Henderson next to him.

Emre Can desperately needs a more mobile midfield partner. Him with Lucas is like having two trees with no Christmas decorations

Emre Can has been our midfield. Only player who has showed desire and quality. He's on his own all across there to be honest.

Emre Can needs a good partnership then you'll see a class midfield. #LFC

Big up to Emre Can today. A one man midfield against the Hammers. Tremendous potential.

Emre Can's future lies at defensive midfield.
