Liverpool v Rubin Kazan: Expected Starting Line-up – Emre Can set to start in midfield


Liverpool take on Russian giants Rubin Kazan in the Europa League at Anfield stadium going into Match Day 3.

The Reds are currently second in Group B but this will be recently appointed manager Jurgen Klopp’s first European game in charge of his new club.

Liverpool drew their opening game 0-0 in Klopp’s first Premier League match on the weekend and Emre Can started in midfield.

The 21-year-old is expected to keep his place in central midfield against Kazan but the Reds will be without Cristian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge due to injury.

Former Turkish intentional Gökdeniz Karadeniz will start for Kazan who have got off to a disappointing start to their Europa League campaign with just one point from their first two games.
