The statistics based website report that Can has made five defensive errors in the Reds opening 12 Premier League games – more than any other player.
Although to be fair the the 21-year-old three of those errors came in a single game following the 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace.
The defeat was the Reds first under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp and Can will be hoping that his performance is forgotten about as soon as possible.
Can was rated the worst player on the field in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace according to WhoScored. The football statistic website gave the 21-year-old a rating of 4.8 for his performance during the Red’s defeat.
The young midfielder had previously made just four defensive errors since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen last season despite playing most of the league campaign as a defender under the command of Brendan Rodgers.
The Germany international of Turkish origin has since been deployed as a central midfielder under Klopp and has started every game under the former Borussia Dortmund head coach.
