“Outstanding,” “A slicked-haired midfield monster” – Fans react to Emre Can’s performance vs. Man City

Emre Can produced a stellar display in the middle of the park as Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw away to top-four rivals Man City on Sunday.

The German has enjoyed a lengthy stint in Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield due to injury to Jordan Henderson, after suffering a poor run of form in a more advance role earlier in the season.

After scoring the winner in last weekend’s 2-1 victory at home to Burnley, Can will have been confident of producing another influential display against City at the Etihad Stadium.

Supporters witnessed just that, with Can in excellent form as the Reds played out a 1-1 draw against Pep Guardiola’s City.

Here’s how social media reacted to Can’s performance against City on Sunday.

“Can, MoTM no doubt. He was immense!”
Cameron Smith on Facebook.

“One of the Reds’ most divisive players recently, anyone laying into Can after his performance at the Etihad is clearly carrying a vendetta.

The German was fantastic in the middle of the park, tackling hard, spraying passes around and showing great heart, and some unstoppable runs forward showcased his box-to-box ability.”
Henry Jackson in our player ratings.

“Woeful for months but unbelievable today. Credit Emre. Need that performance every week.”
John Gardner on Facebook.

“First time since the beginning of the season I say Can was our MOM.”
