Liverpool FC shows their ambitions to qualifying for the Champions League by overcoming Watford in the opponent’s ground by a goal to nil. At stage in which every game is important hence teams that needed the European competitions unexpectedly show lack of seriousness by drawing as others losing, Emre Can makes Jurgen Klopp proud by scoring his seventh Premier League goal since joining the Kops three years ago.
The German Midfielder was assisted by Lucas to score an acrobatic goal that will be the point of talk many days from now to give Liverpool the lead which turned out to be the only goal of the day. As a rare goal scorers Can said;
“I have never scored a goal like that – maybe when I was younger. That is the best goal I’ve ever scored, I saw the space and I ran behind and my first thought was that I wanted to head it, then I didn’t think too much.”
The goal happens to be the eleventh in the 23-year-old’s career, team mate Adam Lallana proposed fellow players will have to allow Can to try more acrobatic attempts in training.
“He does like to try speculative efforts, and we will not have a pop now after he produced that, It was a ‘worldy’ goal, worthy of winning any game. Credit to him, he was brave enough to try it and it flew into the top corner.” Added Lallana.
Last season Dele Alli scored goal of the season and later this month amongst goals from Giroud, Hazard, Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Henderson and Can, the season’s best goal will be chosen. Emre Can could be the first Liverpool player whose goal wins in eleven years, since Steven Gerrard’s FA cup winner in 2006.
Liverpool seats 3rd on the table with 69 points after 35 games played followed by Manchester City which has 66 points and a game at hand. Whereas Watford is 13th with 40 points after 34 games played.
