The Liverpool legend has a message for Emre Can after the German's incredible winner at Crystal Palace
Steven Gerrard congratulated Emre Can for his special goal in Liverpool’s 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Liverpool were looking to make a swift return to winning ways following a surprise 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in their last Premier League outing.
Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped points over the weekend to give Liverpool the chance to put some daylight between themselves and their rivals for a top-four spot.
And Liverpool made the breakthrough in the second minute of added time at the end of the first half when Lucas Leiva picked out Can on the move in Watford’s penalty area.
The Germany international managed to swivel and steer an overhead kick past Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to open the scoring in dramatic fashion in the English capital.
Gerrard was no stranger to scoring spectacular goals during his decorated Liverpool career.
And the Liverpool icon dedicated the following message to Jurgen Klopp’s match-winner Can on Instagram.
Gerrard wrote: “Massive win for @liverpoolfc thanks to a special goal 👏🏻 take a bow @ec2323 🔥🔥🔥”
