Liverpool will collide against Manchester United when the Premier League returns next weekend. The Merseysiders are already seven points behind the Red Devils and must beat their rivals to get back into the title race.
United’s Marouane Fellaini suffered a serious knee injury during the international break and he will not be able to feature vs the Reds.
As far as Liverpool players are concerned, the likes of Emre Can and Mohamed Salah scored for their respective nations last night.
Salah scored twice including an injury time penalty to help Egypt qualify for the World Cup. Not to forget, this will be Egypt’s first appearance in the WC after featuring in the competition in 1990.
On the other hand, Germany completed the perfect qualifying campaign by thrashing Azerbaijan 5-1 last night. The reigning World Champions won all their qualifying games and in the process, they scored 43 goals and conceded just 4.
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can started the contest for the Germans and scored a stunning long rage goal in the 81st minute of the game. Steven Gerrard would have been proud of that strike.
The Reds supporters heavily praised the former Bayern Munich midfielder on social media. Can’s current contract with the Reds will expire next summer and the fans want the club to agree a new deal with him. Here are a few reactions.
Give him a contact ASAP
