“Emre Can should be captain” – Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Germany international’s display following Watford draw

Liverpool were held to a 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road by Watford FC in the opening game of the Premier League season.

Emre Can started for the Reds and provided an assist for Liverpool’s first goal. The 23-year-old flicked the ball around the Watford defence directly into Mane’s path. The Senegal international went onto put the ball into the back of the net.

Unfortunately, Liverpool conceded a last second point costing them the win. Can played the full 90 minutes on the day in midfield alongside Henderson and Wijnaldum.

We took a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on social media to Can’s display. The Germany international received a positive reaction on the whole with some fans calling for him to be given the captaincy.

However, there were some who were not as impressed with Can’s performance on the day.

Liverpool take on Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the UEFA Champions League playoff round next week.

Jurgen Klopp’s side host Crystal Palace at Anfield in their next Premier League fixture on August 19.

Emre Can has under 12 months remaining on his contract with Liverpool.
