Liverpool and Everton played out a 1-1 draw on Sunday with the Reds’ Emre Can at fault for Romelu Lukaku’s equaliser on the stroke of half-time.
Can was back in the position where he played much of last season, on the right side of a back-three that could not prevent the Belgian international from doing what he had already managed six times previously this season.
At the start of the campaign, with Steven Gerrard departed, it looked as though Can would now be played regularly in his more natural position as a central midfielder, but after five Premier League matches there he has played at the back for the last three.
Against Everton Can was not at his best and it will be interesting to see if whoever replaces Brendan Rodgers will keep faith in the German or will look to bring in someone else for the role.
Following the match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Can’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Lots of Germans having a good football day with the exception of Emre Can.— Dillon Hamilton (@haminotty) October 4, 2015
All the blame on Emre Can for that 1-1 draw. Awful defending ... Sorry, but blame has to be placed on him. #LFCVEFC— MrNotSoHERO (@MrNotSoHERO) October 4, 2015
Emre Can is an awful CB and a mundane midfielder.— Los Pollos Hermanos (@LOyewumi) October 4, 2015
Emre can had a poor half and that clearance was awful its not because he is a CM playing in CB any player should be able to clear that!!— JFT96 (@welshyboyant) October 4, 2015
After a poor first half and yellow card Emre Can has been excellent 2nd half #LFC— Jamie Holme (@JayHolme) October 4, 2015
Been the better team in the first half and should be in front. I like Emre Can but he should be getting the basics right there. Poor.— Graham McKenzie (@gramck24) October 4, 2015
