Liverpool fans roast Emre Can & wax lyrical about Wijnaldum on social media

Emre Can - Liverpool

The Reds recorded their first league win of 2017 after defeating Spurs 2-0 at Anfield but Emre Can could not avoid being roasted by Liverpool fans on social media – meanwhile Wijnaldum was widely praised.

Wijnaldum assisted Sadio Mane with the opening goal on 16 minutes and the Senegal international bagged a brace just two minutes later.

Despite not starting and only playing 13 minutes as a second half substitute for Philippe Coutinho, Can was slammed by Reds fans on social media who feel he should fall down the pecking order behind Wijnaldum.

The Germany international of Turkish origin now has three goals and two assists in all competitions for the Reds this season.

We took a look at how Liverpool fans reacted to Emre Can and Wijnaldum on social media.

He used to be known as the tank… now he is being called the Titanic!

Can is not exactly Mr Popular right now among the Reds faithful…

The Can – Wijnaldum debate over who should be first-choice in midfield rages on…

Just a few months back Can could do no wrong but it now seems that Liverpool fans have a new favourite midfielder in Wijnaldum.

Another tweeter underlining why Wijnaldum should be ahead of Can in the pecking order.

It was genuinely difficult to find anyone who thought Can should start ahead of Wijnaldum..

Can has been described as having the mobility of the Titanic and the pressing skills of a headless chicken…

There do appear to be at least a few Can loyalists left. The Germany international of Turkish origin may not be in the best form but does he deserve the hate he has been getting?
