Emre Can issues warning to Man United: Liverpool are back
Emre Can believes Liverpool are back in top form ahead of the final months of the Premier League season
Emre Can has declared that Liverpool are back to their best following their 3-1 win against Everton in Saturday’s Merseyside derby.
The Reds eased to a huge win against their local rivals in the weekend’s early kick-off to move seven points clear of Manchester United ahead of the Red Devils’s clash against West Brom.
Jose Mourinho’s men could only shave a point off Liverpool’s lead following a frustrating goalless draw with West Brom at Old Trafford.
Liverpool will take on Bournemouth, Stoke City, West Brom and Crystal Palace in their next four fixtures before the Reds finish the season with clashes against Watford, Southampton, West Ham and Middlesbrough.
While Manchester United have played two games less than Liverpool, Mourinho’s men still have to face Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Germany and Liverpool midfielder Can has warned their top-four rivals that Jurgen Klopp’s side have rediscovered their best form ahead of the final months of the season.
“It has not been secured [with this result] but it is our target to play in the Champions League,” Can is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“In December, January and February was not our best football but now we are back, we did it in the last couple of games.
“It was very important to win that game. There are still eight games to go and we have to keep it up.”
