It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

Putting contract issues aside, this season will be a decisive one for Emre Can. Whether he is to have a long term future at Anfield is still unknown but what is clear is that the injury suffered to Adam Lallana which is due to keep him out for at least two months and the ongoing problems with Phil Coutinho means the German powerhouse has a great opportunity to stamp his authority on this team. Despite questions still remaining as to …

Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

After a positive 1-1 draw with runaway leaders Chelsea, many thought Liverpool had turned a corner, putting their dismal January form behind them to kick on and fight for a top four spot. However, the predictability with which Liverpool slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Hull City marked a new low for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are in serious risk of their season fizzling out into nothing.
