Emre Can gave us a lovely lead against Huddersfield tonight, although he did have a slight deflection to thank.
Liverpool had dominated possession for the first 25 minutes, without creating too much, but got a deserved break through the German’s long-range effort.
Lining up a shot from 25-yards, Can thumped in a half-volley into the bottom corner of the net – his third of the season.
It’s unlikely that Can will be at Anfield beyond the end this season, sadly, as he’s running down his contract and signing for Juventus.
It’s imperative we get in proper replacement.
