Liverpool's Emre Can wants to repeat ‘incredible’ feeling against Chelsea

Emre Can has been looking ahead to Liverpool's League Cup encounter with Chelsea.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has been looking back at his first goal for the Reds in an interview with the club’s official website.

The summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen netted in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea and he is now looking ahead to the Capital One Cup semi-final encounter with Jose Mourinho’s side.

“It was incredible, you can’t describe it,” the £10million man said.

“I was thinking about this in the car the other day; I scored the goal against Chelsea and it would be great to repeat that again this time, but the most important thing is to beat them.”

The first leg takes place at Anfield this evening and Liverpool will want to take an advantage back to Stamford Bridge, knowing full well how effective Chelsea can be in their own back yard.

The Blues are currently top of the Premier League table, five points clear of reigning champions Manchester City, while Brendan Rodgers’ men are eighth.

But both sides will know anything can happen in cup competitions and Liverpool’s recent form suggests they will give Chelsea a game to remember this evening.

While Premier League glory is beyond the Reds this season, there is absolutely no reason why they cannot secure a trophy elsewhere – with the League Cup the first possibility.
