Rubin Kazan v Liverpool: Expected Starting Line-ups – Emre Can set to start

Emre Can

Liverpool take on Rubin Kazan in Russia hoping to build upon their impressive win against Chelsea last week.

The Reds beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in what was their first win under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp in the Premier League.

Liverpool drew their previous game against Kazan in the group 1-1 a fortnight ago.

Emre Can has started regularly for the German boss since he replaced Brendan Rodgers as head coach over the last international break.

The 21-year-old is likely to start in midfield for Liverpool but Klopp is also expected to rotate a few players.

Liverpool are currently second in Group B on four points after three games. Leaders Sion take on Bordeaux in the other game in the group.
