Emre Can opened his account for Liverpool in the Premier League clash against Chelsea at Anfield this afternoon.

Chelsea may have headed into the Premier League clash against Liverpool as the favourites, but it was the hosts who took the lead.

Summer signing Emre Can has scored his first league goal of the season for the Merseyside outfit to put Liverpool 1-0 ahead in the ninth minute.

The 20-year-old German midfielder found the target from long range with the aid of a deflection.

Can was not closed down by the Chelsea defenders, allowing him to take an early shot which went in off the shoulder of Gary Cahill.
