The midfielder has flourished under Jurgen Klopp's guidance.
Things did not start well for them as Antony Martial scored a penalty to put his side back in the tie, before a goal from Philippe Coutinho put it back in the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Indeed, his performance did not go unnoticed either, as former West Ham defender Daniel Gabbidon’s tweet shows.
That goal from Coutinho ultimately proved the difference in the game, but while he was the star man, there is no denying Emre Can was once again impressive in the heart of midfield.
|Match||Touches||Total Pass||Accurate Pass||Passing Accuracy||Total Tackle||Won Tackle||Interception||Total Clearance|
|Emre Can||Manchester United vs Liverpool||62||39||29||74%||10||8||4||3|
As illustrated in the table provided by WhoScored, the German was heavily involved throughout.
In total he posted 62 touches, the joint most of any Liverpool player alongside Coutinho.
His passing was decent as he made 39 passes in total, with 29 of those accurate ones, enjoying a passing success rate of 74%.
Defensively he was a rock throughout, attempting 10 tackles and winning eight of those, both of which were the most of any player in the game.
That was coupled with four interceptions and three clearances in another impressive display from the German who is clearly flourishing under Jurgen Klopp’s guidance.
