Before every Premier League match, players tend to get asked about the upcoming game and what they need to do to get all three points.
On this occasion it was no different as Liverpool midfielder Emre Can discussed how his team will combat arch enemies Manchester United this weekend.
📰 Emre Can can't wait to be back at Anfield on Saturday.

In an interview with the club’s official website, the Germany international claimed that the players must make “hard in the tackles” and “dominate the game” against Jose Mourinho’s team.
Some fans, though, seemed to bypass Can’s remarks and instead focus on the elephant in the room – the midfielder’s contract situation.
Corriere dello Sport recently claimed that a deal could already be in place for Can at Juventus, who have been linked to the 23-year-old for some time.
The midfielder is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract at Anfield, which has led some fans to wonder whether he is thinking of moving on.
Is signing a contract a crucial factor?

He’s so happy he’ll sign a contract yes? Or him and his agent see a big wad of cash with him leaving for free I bet.
