Liverpool host Villarreal tonight at Anfield in the second leg of their Europa League tie.

Emre Can is in contention to be included in Liverpool’s starting line-up just one month after an ankle injury he sustained during the Red’s 4-3 win over Dortmund.

The 22-year-old was expected to miss the rest of Liverpool’s season but has made a recovery well ahead of schedule.

Emre Can is ready to return to the squad for sure,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.

“Only Emre will return to the squad for this game.”

Can has three assists and two goals in 46 appearances for Liverpool this season. The Germany international has thrived under Jurgen Klopp and is a important member of Liverpool’s starting line-up when fit.
