Emre Can’s stunning long-range effort against Burnley has been named as Liverpool’s goal of the month for March.
The German’s fourth goal of the season helped his team to a hard-fought 2-1 win and recognised his rise to form in place of the injured Jordan Henderson.
Can had been subject to criticism not long before as a result of lacklustre performances and claims that he was refusing to sign a new contract.
With issues over a new deal having been put to one side for the time being, the 23-year-old has endured a strong run of games and has started having the kind of impact as a box-to-box midfielder that fans have been desperate to see.
He impressed yet again on Saturday as the Reds secured an emphatic 3-1 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby. Henderson’s absence has seemingly sparked Can’s best form of the season and given him greater responsibility in his team’s midfield trio.
