Emre Can has taken time out ahead of Monday’s clash with Arsenal to relax with friends at Liverpool ONE.

The Reds travel to the Emirates Stadium for Monday night football, and Can will have his work cut out in attempting to oust captain and vice-captain tandem Jordan Henderson and James Milner from Brendan Rogers’ starting XI.

Rogers has used the same 11 in consecutive 1-0 wins against Stoke and Bournemouth, and is expected to keep England internationals Henderson and Milner in front of the back four against the Gunners.

Can’s friend wrote: “having some coffee with the Boyz ☕️ #liverpool #city #coffee #emrecan #ynwa #frankfurt #ffm #mokommtniekaffeetrinken @ec2323 @sahne03”

German international Can enjoyed a mixed debut season at Anfield, often being deployed in an unfamiliar position on the right of back three.
