Liverpool star Emre Can played a key role in the Reds 6-1 demolition of Southampton in the League Cup yesterday.

The Germany international of Turkish origin started in central midfield and setup Daniel Sturridge with an exquisite assist that put the Reds ahead for the first time in the game after coming back from one goal down.

It was not all smiles however, as Can picked up a booking that has ruled him out of the Premier League encounter with Newcastle United on the weekend.

Sturridge found the back of the net twice in the first half while Derek Origi scored a hat-trick. Jordon Ibe scored Liverpool’s remaining goal.

The 21-year-old now has one assist and one goal for Liverpool in 21 appearances this season.

Following the game we took to social media to see how Can’s performance went down with fans.

It probably will not come as much of a surprise that quite a few tweeters quite impressed with his assist.

Other fans were impressed with his performance in midfield and criticised former manager Brendan Rodgers who deployed him as a defender for most of the season.

Another tweeters revealed that he is looking forward to seeing Can work alongside Jordan Henderson when he recovers from injury.
