Liverpool receive boost following update on Emre Can's fitness

Liverpool have received a boost following their star midfielders Emre Can’s latest injury update.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the 22-year-old is expected to return to full fitness before the end of the season.

Can was initially ruled out for up to six weeks after he damaged ankle ligaments in last week’s 4-3 Europa League victory over Borussia Dortmund.

The Germany international seems to have responded well to the treatment and is set to recover ahead of schedule.

This is Can’s first major injury since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen at the beginning of last season. The 22-year-old was a major part of Klopp’s starting line-up. Can had cemented a place in Liverpool’s first eleven prior to his injury.

Liverpool take on relegation battlers Newcastle United this weekend in the Premier League. The Red’s take on Villareal in the Europa League next week.
