Player of the Match
German international Emre Can was absolutely sensational today, with the former Bayer Leverkusen ace bagging himself a goal and an assist in the Reds’ rout.
Despite rumours of him leaving at the end of the season, it’s nice to see the midfielder still willing to put in a solid effort for the Merseyside club.
