Plenty of Liverpool fans were concerned in the summer when transfer rumours surrounded Emre Can, but it seems that some supporters would not be too brokenhearted now based on his performance against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League.
The German international was named in Jurgen Klopp’s first XI, but he struggled to make a positive impact in the game.
On numerous occasions, the midfielder was guilty of losing the ball in dangerous positions.
Klopp decided to substitute his fellow countryman in the 73rd minute, and it was a night to forget for Can as Liverpool were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw in Russia.
The Reds had the majority of possession and had a handful of opportunities to get the job done, but they were unable to snatch maximum points.
Can took plenty of the criticism when the match came to a close.
Emre Can needs to get the hook! Hasn't been a great performance from him today #LFC

Emre Can just isn't good enough. 1 goal every now and again doesn't overshadow how average he is. Henderson the same. Awful #LFC

I'm probably Emre Can's most ardent supporter but he's not been in great form these last few games. We need him back at his best soon. #LFC
