Liverpool’s four game unbeaten run came to an abrupt end yesterday evening when they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City.
Can played 75 minutes during Liverpool’s defeat before being taken off for Joe Allen.
Leicester took the lead in the 60th minute via Jamie Vardy and doubled his sides lead in the 71st minute.
The 22-year-old received a rating of 6.3 from WhoScored for his performance on the night. Can made two tackles, one clearance and no interceptions.
Liverpool slipped to eight position following today’s defeat while Leicester maintained their three point lead at the top of the table.
Can has cemented his place in the Red’s midfield since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool take on Sunderland in their next Premier League encounter.
Following the game we took to social media to see how Can’s performance went down with fans. The Germany international received a negative reaction from fans for his display yesterday evening.
It's hard to believe Emre Can is playing in the premiership ! This guy is such a donkey !

Honestly think I'd rather have Fellaini in my team than emre can and James Milner.

On the evidence so far this season, Emre can't

Emre Can is so inconsistent

Emre can has no end product, he should be converted to a Defensive midfielder, bring in Hakan and Hamsik, goal scoring midfielders
