The 22-year-old is expected to start in midfield when the two rivals come face to face today in the Premier League.
“I know about the rivalry. I know the score,” Can told the Liverpool Echo.
“When I’m out and about in the city, fans come up to me, and they tell me about the rivalry. They say that in Manchester it’s not good to talk about Liverpool and in Liverpool it’s not good to talk about Manchester United.
“Everyone in the world knows about this big game, Liverpool against Manchester United, and the rivalry that is there. In Germany, it’s like Schalke against Borussia Dortmund.”
Can will be looking to build upon his impressive performance against Arsenal on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old took 75 touches, made 39 accurate passes and two key passes according to Opta stats. Can also contributed defensively with two tackles, three interceptions and an impressive 12 defensive duels won.
Can is once again set to start in midfield alongside James Milner and Jordan Henderson. Liverpool can move up to 6th place with a win over their rivals today.
