Emre Can has played in several positions since joining Liverpool in the summer of 2014. Central defender (usually on the right of 3), full back, midfield on one side of 3 and yesterday as defensive central midfielder. DMF is where Brendan Rogers said he saw Can playing once he settled into the Premier League but I can’t recall him ever starting him there. With Lucas playing like the Lucas of old it was only his suspension that provided an opportunity for someone else to get a chance. I thought the role would go to Allen who is far less gifted than Can and far less physical but is capable of playing a very disciplined game. Though I’m a great fan of Can I thought he lacked the self-discipline for the role, his inclination being to surge forward at every opportunity. However, yesterday I thought he was our best player despite one slip that might have proved costly but didn’t. Of course one performance proves nothing but I’d like to see him given more chances in that position over the rest of the season. I’ve been calling for another DMF to be brought in but if Can maintains yesterday’s level of performance the money could be used to strengthen other positions. I’m wondering what other members think is Can’s best position? Of course 21 is a very young age for a DMF and it may be that the boy is best utilised further forward in midfield at present, but his performance certainly made me think again about his best position.
