Emre Can looked comfortable while playing in Liverpool’s back three in the 4-1 Premier League win over Swansea City.
The German star, Emre Can is a good case in point, coming into a back three and looking both comfortable on the ball and confident about the defensive requirements of the position.
It has already been suggested that this deeper role could be the German’s best position and he certainly looks capable of staying in the side and earning the run of games that has so far eluded him.
The Former Manchester United gaffer, David Moyes was reportedly interested in Emre Can on the basis that he can offer him first-team football but the former Bayer Leverkusen player, since joining the Reds, looks completely at home.
He had an elbow in the face from Jonjo Shelvey late in the first half, but that blow did not put Can off his game.
The Swansea player might hear more about the incident once the replays have been fully studied but Can started the second half rising commandingly on halfway to win an aerial challenge with Wilfried Bony, something the Anfield crowd appreciated is not the easiest thing to accomplish.
Along with Can the Spanish wing-back was another of Liverpool’s successes on the last night against Swansea.
