Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is aware that he once again needs to prove himself to Jurgen Klopp in order to re-gain his starting position.
The 22-year-old was a first-team regular last season but has lost his place in the starting eleven following a string of injuries.
Can suffered an ankle injury at the tail end of last season and came back late to pre-season after Euro 2016. The Germany international suffered the same ankle injury in his first game against Burton this term.
“I played my first game against Burton and I got injured, which was a little bit unlucky, so now I have to get my fitness back and see what happens. I have to show myself again,” Can was quoted assaying by the Mirror.
“Every player has to start from zero and myself as well.
“It’s not easy, but I have to be patient. I try to train hard and if I get game time then I try to play well and then we will see what happens.”
Liverpool have scored nine goals in their last three fixtures while only conceding two goals. With the midfield trio of, Jordan Henderson, Wijnaldum and Lallana working so well of late, Can may struggle to regain his starting place in the near future.
In other Liverpool team news, Loris Karius made his debut against Derby County this week but is unlikely to replace Simon Mignolet in goal for the Premier League clash against Hull City this weekend.
