3 Key Battles (Liverpool vs. Arsenal): Can Ozil Be Handled By Can?

3. Emre Can vs. Mesut Ozil

If Liverpool are to get anything out of this game they need to keep a lid on Mesut Ozil. The German has assisted 16 times this season and has also scored five goals. Ozil could well unlock Liverpool’s defence in his sleep and the midfield would have to be extra cautious in dealing with him.

Emre Can could well be deployed in the role to keep a tab on his fellow German, Can has been the most improved Liverpool midfielder under Klopp and this could well be the biggest challenge the young German has faced during his time in England.
