Emre Can has stated that Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Chelsea in the Premier League was ‘extremely important’.
The victory put an end to Liverpool’s poor away form and served as a confidence boost for the squad. Can went onto say that his aim is to qualify to the UEFA Champions League with Liverpool.
‘The win at Chelsea was extremely important because we hadn’t won an away game for a long time,” Can stated in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“We want to play in the Champions League. With hard work, hopefully we will get back into the top four. We have a good chance”
The 21-year-old was rated the worst player on the field in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend according to WhoScored.
Can had previously made just four defensive errors since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen last season despite playing most of the league campaign as a defender under the command of Brendan Rodgers.
The Germany international of Turkish origin has since been deployed as a central midfielder under Klopp and has started every game under the former Borussia Dortmund head coach.
